My Favorite War (Mans mīļākais karš), dir. Ilze Burkovska-Jacobsen, 52’ & 80’, Latvia/Norway, 2020
My Favorite War is the director’s personal story of growing up in the Soviet Union during the Cold War. A coming-of-age tale about finding one’s own identity, loyalty and truth beneath the propaganda and oppression of an authoritarian regime. With the rise of undemocratic forces today, this animated documentary is more relevant than we would like it to be.
