24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Weapon of Choice
The Glock handgun is popular among black rappers, Austrian soldiers, and Middle Eastern tyrants. But the person who loves it most is its inventor, Gaston Glock. In this short reportage on the controversial arms industry, Austrian director Fritz Ofner’s clear objective is to demystify the story of a weapon, supposedly invented in a garage, that never fails.
Fritz Ofner (1977) studied journalism and cultural anthropology in Vienna, where he currently works. In 2011, the Ji.hlava IDFF showed his film Evolution of Violence (2011).
