My Favourite War is an animated documentary based on the childhood memories of director Ilze Burkovska-Jacobsen, growing up in the Soviet Latvia during the Cold War. A coming-of-age story about the personal road of escape from the brainwashing by the mighty authoritarian regime.
When Ilze discoveres bones from a German soldier in her sandpit she starts finding other stories buried beneath the propaganda.
‘I had to make a choice then - who do I want to become, and what do I believe in? The same questions young generations are asking themselves today’.
