The frontlines of childhood

In a village close to the frontlines in the Donetsk province in eastern Ukraine, ten-year-old Oleg lives with his grandmother. The ongoing war, ever-present through the sound of missiles and anti-aircraft fire, has led more and more villagers to flee, but Oleg and his grandmother have nowhere to go. The award-winning documentary THE DISTANT BARKING OF DOGS is a poetic and moving coming-of-age story about the influence of war on children and a powerful reminder of the importance of friendship and compassion when the world is falling to pieces.
