US PREMIERE In the village of Kolofata on the Nigerian border, the Cameroonian military has been dispatched to guard villagers from attacks by the religious terrorist group Boko Haram. In this milieu, filmmaker Cyrielle Raingou follows three young children as they navigate lost innocence while growing up in constant fear. Having sparked international outrage in 2014 with the kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls, Boko Haram may have fallen out of mainstream headlines, but the threat they represent—especially to children—is as omnipresent as ever. – Jaie Laplante
