FANT, POBRATIM SMRTI 2

LOGLINE


Chernobyl 25 years later… What was happening in the meantime, between the first nuclear cataclysm and the prospect of another one? Where have all the international relief funds disappeared and where are the millions, intended for the reconstruction of the decaying sarcophagus? Where is my life taking me? What legacy am I leaving to my son… These are just some of the questions that the little boy from Chernobyl Anatoliy Rizhov – Tolya, now a grown-up, is trying to answer 20 years after the first documentary about him was made.

The film Boy, Blood-Brother of Death 2 is a sequel to the refined story about Tolya and his family trying to live and survive with radiation in a small Ukranian village not far from the largest memorial in nuclear history – from Chernobyl. This is an intimate story about a boy trying to escape its destiny. Will he make it?

Have we learnt anything in the past 20 years? Will the human race manage to avoid new nuclear cataclysms? Judging by the facts nothing good awaits us… We are announcing red alarm!

DIRECTOR ABOUT THE FILM


Some films you shoot or make mark you forever. Filming in radiation with Tolya and my tiny camera in 1991 is one such experience. I’ve strived for years to produce a sequel to the story. In 2011 we finally did it. If we live through the next 20 years we promised each other to make another sequel.

Maja Weiss, director & co-writer

The film is dedicated to everyone who believes the world can still change for the better. BOY, BLOOD-BROTHER OF DEATH 1 and 2 give us first-hand testimony as to what can happen if you play with fire… Let’s think again before we resign our children up to the ‘peaceful atom’!

Gorazd Perko, writer
