In Russian Playground, the listlessness of the modern child is perfectly captured in a compelling fly-on-the-wall style. The menace and melancholy of 21st century childhood is also illustrated by a daring fantasy sequence. This is the urban city as concrete sandpit, a place where parkour, wrestling or just hanging out is a joy separate from the adult world.
A film by Denes Nagy (Hungary)
Camera: Leo Bruges (Uk)
