The Italian director Giacomo Abbruzzese’s debut feature is an entrancing stunner about two men caught up in the shadow of sweeping global forces.
NO LONGER PLAYING
Aleksei is a young Belarusian on the run from a past he must bury. In a form of Faustian pact, he becomes a member of the French Foreign Legion in exchange for the promise of French citizenship. Far away, in the Niger Delta, Jomo is a revolutionary activist, engaged in armed struggle to defend his community. Aleksei is a soldier, Jomo a guerrilla fighter. Because of one more senseless war, their destinies will intertwine.
