A fictional film that uses Italian neorealist techniques to mimic documentary style footage. The other film, Waltz with Bashir,
blends traditional documentary form with animation to create a nightmarish meditation on memory and
institutional/personal amnesia of war. You are also going to be reading a lecture by Svetlana Alexievich as she
explains her motivations behind capturing the Soviet and post-Soviet soul through her own hybrid work. (The
essay can be found on pages 6-19 in the document. )
1) Does the switch from Rotoscoped to documentary footage at the end of Waltz with Bashir undercut the
power/rhetoric of the animated medium? Does it show its limitations? Or does the break successfully shock the
viewer out of a dreamlike state produced by the film? Why or why not?
2) Do you agree or disagree with the notion of this film being in the ‘shooting and crying’ genre? Does this film
privilege the suffering of the shooter over the suffering of the victim?
3) In a world where suffering is wonton, quotidian, and often banal due to the easy accessibility of video news
footage, does neo-realism or the hybrid style of Alexievich stand a chance? In other words, the mission is to
shock the reader/viewer into collective action against injustice through fictional techniques that borrow from
documentary. Do these styles still matter in the face of easy accessibility to violence?

The difference between what it owns and what it owes is its equity, also commonly called \”net assets\” or \”shareholders equity\”. The balance sheet tells investors a lot about a company\’s fundamentals: how much debt the company has, how much it needs to collect from customers (and how fast it does so), how much cash and equivalents it possesses and what kinds of funds the company has generated over time. o Cash Flow and Fund Flow Analysis • Cash flow statement provides information about the changes in cash and cash equivalents of an enterprise. Cash flow statement is based on the cash concept of profit. Cash flow statement seems to be useful because it identifies cash generated from trading operations, the operating cash surplus which can be applied for investment in fixed assets. Infact a portion of cash from operations is used to pay dividend and tax and the other portion is ploughed back. What can be ploughed back is directly identifiable from cash flow statement.
