Shooter

Read Full Script | PDF

Shooter-coverimageShooter explores the correlation of our gun culture to the fragile state of the male identity. Shooter tells the story of three long-time friends and a prevented high school shooting.

On a sunny weekday afternoon, Jim Bender sees a teenage boy approach towards the entrance of the local high school, two shotguns beneath a trench coat. Jim pulls his own firearm, stopping a shooter-massacre before it happens. Jim Bender is a hero. But as the full story is revealed, this truth becomes a lot less clear – and that is not what people need it to be.

Shooter asks: are today’s shooter-massacres the result of a malformed and destabilized male identity? With each and every violent shooter-massacre carried out by a man, Shooter questions the relationship of today’s gun violence to a crisis of the male identity.
