FFG On Tour: The Painted Bird

Every month, Film Fest Gent brings new and fantastic movies for an avant-premiere near to you. During the month of April, Film Fest On Tour will feature "The Painted Bird" by Czech filmmaker, actor and screenwriter Václav Marhoul.

'The Painted Bird' is a gruesome war drama by Václav Marhoul, who strongly divided the opinions at the latest Venice Film Festival: some said 'splendid', others said 'perverse profit'. According to the director: a plea for love and humanity.

The controversial film follows the journey of a boy who was entrusted by his persecuted parents to an older foster mother. The old woman dies and the boy remains behind, wandering through the countryside, from village to farm. While struggling to survive, he is confronted with extraordinary brutalities caused by the ignorant, superstitious peasants and he witnesses the frightening violence of the efficient, ruthless soldiers, both Russian and German. When the war ends, the boy is changed forever.
