Inspired by a true story about modern-day slavery experienced by economic immigrants in Western Europe, Oleg premiered in Directors’ Fortnight program of Cannes Film Festival. Oleg, who reminds us of the protagonists from the films by Ken Loach or Dardenne brothers. Oleg is a young Latvian butcher who arrives in Brussels to work in a meat factory. But his immigrant status and lack of solidarity among the workers make it hard for him to keep the job. After losing the job, Oleg is taken under the wing of a charismatic Polish criminal. In a system where human rights for immigrants are nonexistent or very low, without privileges or economic resources, the promise of a better life seems like a dream and becomes a nightmare.
