In Russian with English subtitles.
The debut feature by the great Andrei Tarkovsky, Ivan's Childhood (Ivanovo detstvo) is a poetic journey through the shards and shadows of one boy's war-ravaged youth. Moving back and forth between the traumatic realities of World War II and serene moments of family life before the conflict began, Tarkovsky's film remains one of the most jarring and unforgettable depictions of the impact of war on children.
