Oleg's Choice

Le Choix d'Oleg
Elena Volochine, James Keogh
France | 2016 | 72 min.

Category: Restless Ukraine

Fighting in eastern Ukraine broke out in early 2014. Since the summer, thousands of young Russians, driven by television propaganda and a thirst for adventure, began to pour in. Among these volunteers were Oleg and Max. Oleg became a battalion commander and Max remained an ordinary soldier. While they prepare to fight, they discuss their motivations and share their own perspective on the conflict. The image becomes a unique personal testimony of one side of the war, one rarely seen in the western media.
