Best Doks winner VFF Documentary Film Production Award
BOY OF WAR
18-year old Artiom feels a calling: he must go into battle – for his “mother,” Ukraine. He will save her, he thinks. With childlike naivety he treks through forests and ruins, his gun at the ready playing war and practicing for war - until the harsh reality catches up with him.
