Anton Greene

. January 30, 2015.

A Clague Middle School sixth grader, born and raised in Ann Arbor, is at the doorstep of global stardom for his leading role in the Ukrainian feature film “The Guide,” which has been submitted for Oscar consideration. Anton Sviatoslav Greene had never acted before when he was cast to star in the Oles Sanin film, set in the Great American Depression. The story follows a man and his son, played by Greene, as they travel to Ukraine to launch a tractor business. When his father is murdered by Stalin’s secret police, the boy goes on the run with a blind musician. Greene’s status as bilingual, his summer trips to Ukraine, and some luck, got him the movie role of a lifetime.
