When the War Comes
Jan Gebert, CZ/HR 2018
Peter Švrček from Slovakia seems to have a nice life, but he is concerned about the future of his country and the arrival of immigrants. If there’s going to be a war, Peter wants to be prepared for it, so in his free time he leads a paramilitary group of dozens of men. In their weekend training sessions, they wear fake uniforms and use dummy weapons, but they take their mission very seriously indeed.
Movies That Matter On Tour is a spin-off of the annual Movies That Matter Festival. From October until May film theatres in seventeen Dutch cities host a one-off screening of festival favourites. Each month a controversial film or documentary in combination with introductions or Q&A’s with inspiring guests.
