A House Made of Splinters

1h 27m Documentary 2022

In a war-torn and impoverished corner of Eastern Ukraine, where drug addiction casts a long shadow, sits a safe haven for at risk children temporarily removed from their parents. A House Made of Splinters follows three such kids waiting to know if they are to return to broken homes, or be fostered to new parents, while a group of dedicated social workers create small moments of joy and respite for childhoods all but lost. Director Simon Lereng Wilmont follows up his acclaimed debut, The Distant Barking of Dogs, with a unique look into how the long-term consequences of war impact the most vulnerable members of society.

Available to watch from Thursday 22nd September at 6:00PM until Sunday 25th September at 6:00PM as part of the IFI Documentary Festival 2022.
