Belgium 2012 reż. Jasna Krajinovic 60 min

Anton Belakov is 12 years old and lives with his grandmother in a small house outside Moscow. For any boy his age, summer should be a time of new experiences, discoveries and fun. But like 60% of Russian children, Anton has decided to spend the summer at the Kaskad school – one of President Putin’s youth military training camps. Physical conditioning, prayer, barracks banter, weapons training, anti-Chechen propaganda sessions: filmmaker Jasna Krajinovic takes an unflinching look at youth being moulded for war. ‘Un été avec Anton’ is both superbly constructed and utterly terrifying. It is like staring into the face of a future in the process of collapsing.
