Still photography of a short film by Yangzom Brauen, shot in Los Angeles and North of Santa Barbara end of May 2015
“Born in Battle” tells the story of Oneka, a former twelve year old child soldier who has escaped the clutches of his rebel masters. In order to survive his past he escapes into his own fantasy, a world far away from his nightmarish present. The life he seeks fades the tighter he grips. Fantasy twists back to reality and when he stands in front of his parents and sister, he has to make a choice—life, death, and the path that decision will take him.
