My Favorite War
Many festivals have selected this excitingly animated cute documentary on painful childhood memories of growing up in an occupied country with restrictions, punishments, brainwash lies, forceful orders and non-stop propaganda.
Ilzė Burkovska uses her personal experience to shout out strong anti-war message. She mixes hand-drawn animation, authentic archive footage and conversations with friends for the fast rewind history lesson about Latvia under the Soviet regime, which forcefully built the happiest country in whole world. Everyone wanted to become a pioneer in school during that nostalgically misunderstood period and obeying Ilzė is no exception. The most difficult for her to understand, why her wise grandfather despises such amazing good-hearted communists.
