Sometimes experience can be a limit

Ironically, a substantial obstacle for innovation comes often from the most experienced professionals. A great example is the financing process for “Waltz with Bashir”, now considered a masterpiece. When Ari Folman, writer and director, presented the project to a group of top-level commissioners, the main concern was: why using animation for a documentary about war? Only Arte France believed in the challenge, giving a fundamental support to the financing process of a unique work that created a new language for documentaries.
