Christine Cynn 
2016 | 87 mins 
Country of Production: Norway 
Countries Featured: Germany, France 
US Premiere | Director in Attendance 
Sunday, October 16 | 5 pm | Program F22

Christine Cynn, co-director of the Academy Award-nominated documentary The Act of Killing, returns with a scathing examination of the arms trade, told through the personal stories of victims, soldiers, manufacturers, and activists from around the world. The conversation surrounding the weapons industry is too often relegated to the political and economic sphere—here, we meet real people and their interactions with weapons. The subjects turn the cameras on one another and themselves, engaging important questions about war, politics and the many unique human experiences that are deeply affected by a world in conflict.

She longs, symbolically, to be surrounded by the color green.
