Directed by: Cary Joji Fukunaga
Beasts of No Nation, directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, is a story of a young boy, Agu, taking place in an unspecified country of West Africa during civil war. Agu is enrolled by a rebel armed group and becomes a child soldier. He is then enforced to commit atrocities, and to leave his past behind, though he still hopes to find his mother back. This movie also shows the lack of protection of the civilians, forced to flee the atrocities of war, by governmental forces as well as the UN, but examines as well shortly the reintegration of demobilized children.
