Samuel Maoz’s Film “Lebanon”

Friday, August 06, 2010

Samuel Maoz talks about writing and directing the film “Lebanon,” which is based on his own experiences as a 20-year-old Israeli soldier during the 1982 Lebanon war. The film brings us inside an Israeli tank during the first 24 hours of the invasion, restricting the action entirely to the tank’s interior and shows us the outside world, only as the four young soldiers inside see it. “Lebanon” opens August 6 at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas and Landmark Sunshine.

We must assume the guest communicates better visually than verbally.
