Strip and War
Best Feature Documentary
A charming tale of a retired military officer stuck in a Soviet past who lives with his grandson, a former engineer who now pursues higher pay and job satisfaction as a stripper. The film tells the story of a small family, consisting of a grandfather retired from the army, and his stripper grandson. It is not just a story of a relationship, but rather a reflection of entire Belarus and the post-Soviet, pro-Russian world. Moreover, it’s a universally-recognized reflection of a generation gap.
