Pistol

Andreas Thaulow - Denmark
2016 — Fiction — English subtitles — brechtsen@gmail.com

Seven-year-old Bilal is playing with a gun that he found. He points it at his friend, shoots – and kills. No one is hurt in this game of war played out in a Copenhagen schoolyard, but the illusion is convincing, until Bilal’s dad honks and picks him up in his taxi. Soon the boundaries of imagination and reality are tested again, when a junkie holds them hostage in the car.
