About the Film

ANTON / ANTOHUKRAINE / GEORGIA / CANADA / UNITED STATES 2019, 99 MIN RUSSIAN, GERMANDIRECTOR: ZAZA URUSHADZESet in a Ukrainian village in 1919 where German immigrants and Jews live side by side in the wake of the Russian Revolution, this moving drama explores the unbreakable bond of friendship between Jakob, a Jew, and his Catholic friend, Anton. The imaginary world they create shields them from the violence and divisions surrounding them. When Anton’s family escapes to seek a new life, memories of the boys’ friendship sustain them, shaping their lives until they finally reunite as old men. Based on Canadian author Dale Eisler’s novel, Anton marks director Zaza Urushadze’s (Academy Award nominee, Tangerines) final film before his death at 54.
