Several people would give anything to see a time when the Germans were rounded up and carted off to horrible places. Here, then, is the tale of Georg.
The Hyderabad Film Club, in collaboration with the Federation Of Film Societies Of India, Mumbai, is organising a 3-day Festival Of Films From Central Asia, from 11th to 13th May, at Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet. Today, the second day, Little Angel Make Me Happy (Angelochek Sdelay Radost), a Turkmenistan film, will be the first movie to be screened.
The film is directed by Usman Saparov. Before World War II, German settlers from Russia had been living with the Turkomen natives in peaceful co-existence. When war breaks out, the adult German population, branded as fascist, is rounded up and carted off to Siberia.
The children are all taken to an orphanage - all, that is, except Georg, a German boy who manages to elude the men in uniform. Now a fugitive in his own village, he tries to make sense of a world which is growing increasingly hostile towards him and labels him a deserter, a word whose meaning he doesn’t understand.
