Storyline:

The otherwise close-knit family is in crisis. Mie and Ole can no longer bear to share a room, Søs is tired of acting as the family’s surrogate mother, and Dad does not have the usual surplus to tackle Uncle Anders’ peculiar behavior. Little Per is left, who is just sad about it all. Uncle Anders therefore registers the family for a stay at a family therapy place, where the family will live as Vikings for a week. In the company of the children’s holiday guest Olivia, the family sets off to get things in order. With them, of course, they also have the elephant Bodil, the whole family’s old stuffed animal, who suddenly comes to play a major role when she is involved in one of the eager therapists’ self-invented Viking exercises.

Olegs krig (original title)
1h 31min | Documentary, War | 23 November 2018 (Sweden)

Storyline:

THE DISTANT BARKING OF DOGS is set in Eastern Ukraine on the frontline of the war. The film follows the life of 10-year-old Ukrainian boy Oleg throughout a year, witnessing the gradual erosion of his innocence beneath the pressures of war. Oleg lives with his beloved grandmother, Alexandra, in the small village of Hnutove. Having no other place to go, Oleg and Alexandra stay and watch as others leave the village. Life becomes increasingly difficult with each passing day, and the war offers no end in sight. In this now half-deserted village where Oleg and Alexandra are the only true constants in each other’s lives, the film shows just how fragile, but crucial, close relationships are for survival. Through Oleg’s perspective, the film examines what it means to grow up in a war zone. It portrays how a child’s universal struggle to discover what the world is about grows interlaced with all the dangers and challenges the war presents. Thus, THE DISTANT BARKING OF DOGS unveils the consequences of war bearing down on the children in Eastern Ukraine, and by natural extension, the scars and self-taught life lessons this generation will carry with them into the future.
