Compelling, poignant, sometimes funny stories of cross-cultural encounters or collisions, both true and fiction, from around the world are screened at the International Film Festival. The festival’s closing night film is Two Shots Fired (Argentina, Martín Rejtman, 2014, 105 min).
In this absurdist black comedy by veteran Argentine director Martín Rejtman (his first feature in 10 years), 16-year-old Mariano comes home one night and inexplicably shoots himself twice, once in the head and once in the stomach. More inexplicably, he isn’t even injured. From this irrational beginning, random events unwind for Mariano and his family and friends.
