When the War Comes

Special ‘Movies That Matter on Tour’ screening, with an introduction and Q&A by Amnesty International.

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.

Hundreds of teenagers join the Slovak Recruits paramilitary group to get ready for the final clash of civilizations and to fight whoever invades their country.
