Ivan's Childhood: The Criterion Collection

The great Andrei Tarkovsky's debut feature, Ivan's Childhood (Ivanovo Detstvo), is an evocative, poetic journey through the shadows and shards of a boy's war-torn youth. Moving back and forth between the traumatic realities of World War II and serene moments of family life before the conflict began, Tarkovsky's film remains one of the most jarring and unforgettable depictions of the impact of violence on children in wartime.
