Hostage Hostage

Wednesday 18 November 2015 6:00PM Hostage, Canadian Premiere

Tragicomic story about the world of children heroes - particularly the son of a local Communist officer and his friend, a hostage of the regime, thanks to the parents who emigrated to the West a few years before the legendary period of "Prague Spring" and the occupation of Czechoslovakia. A family film including camaraderie, the discovery of love, enemy gang fights and naïve ideas, confronted with the reality of the "adult" world. First contacts with the bizarre and absurd reality of relationships and attitudes of adults - politics, emigration, but also betrayal and death - and how all those things form and transform the lives of small boys, who are forced to grow up too quickly.
