An interview with director Hleb Papou, from Belarus and Italy, who was selected to be part of Future Frames at the 53rd Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. European Film Promotion (EFP) presents ten outstanding young directors from Europe with their latest work at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival every year. Papou’s film is called The Legionnaire.
The Legionnaire: Daniel is an officer in a police special operations unit which has been given the task of clearing out a house full of immigrants. He, himself, is a descendant of African newcomers and the situation is made worse by the fact that his brother and mother live in the house as well. The time has come for him to decide whether to remain loyal to the establishment or to his own roots.
