Everything You Always Wanted to Know About the Arms Trade* (*But Were Afraid to Ask)

In SHOOTING OURSELVES Christine Cynn tells the story of "Situation Rooms", an award-winning art installation in the shape of a real-life multiplayer game wherein the audience explores 13 reconstructions of rooms from all around the world. Each room tells a tale of violent conflict and join together to present a highly critical portrait of the global arms trade and its obvious and less obvious influence on the world we live in. At the same time, it's also a film about new and immersive forms of theatre that puts its audience center stage.
