WEAPON OF CHOICE

(Fritz Ofner & Eva Hausberger)

“They never fail.” The Glock pistol has been fetish- ised in films and the arts, and is a regular topseller intheinternationalarmsmarket.Forthefirsttime, the filmmaking duo Fritz Ofner and Eva Haus- berger tells the story of the rise of the Glock: An Austrian design that became the most sought-af- ter service and murder weapon worldwide. Trac- ing the web of power, money, violence and pol- itics, the film masterfully portrays the dark sides of globalisation and can be viewed as an Austrian tale of willful ignorance. (MJ)
