On Firing Rifles in the Air

Netherlands, 2002 (MIFF 2002, Fiction)

Director: Sander Blom

A short film investigating the connection between a diet of grains and nuts, how far you can do the splits, little girls with ribbons, and predestination. Not to forget Georgian men firing rifles and the head of a cross-eyed horse.
