The First World War was a tragedy that launched a series of severe tests for the Russian people: revolution, civil war, famine, political repression, the Second World war. And all this fell on one generation of people. A Russian Youth tells the story of a simple village boy who goes to the front of the First World War with a naive youthful dream of fame and medals. In the first battle, he loses his sight. He must then serve as a listener – carefully monitoring through huge metal funnels and raising the alarm in case enemy airplanes’ approach.

Followed by a Q&A with director Alexander Zolotukhin
