Director

Simon Lereng Wilmont

Denmark / Sweden / 2017 / 90 minutes / DCP / Color

In eastern Ukraine, orphaned 10-year-old Oleg lives with his grandmother in a village near the front lines of the war against pro-Russian separatists. Gunfire and missile strikes are part of daily life, but Oleg and his younger cousin Yarik spend their time chasing typical boyhood diversions in the countryside, even as the threat of death looms large. While the politics of the military conflict are deliberately avoided in Wilmont’s documentary, Oleg clearly senses the theft of his childhood and the bleak path his future promises. Screening with Wrong Revision (15min).
