Shooter

Read Full Script | PDF

Shooter-coverimageOn a sunny weekday afternoon Jim Bender stands in front of the local high school. Jim sees a teenage boy lurch towards the school entrance, two shotguns beneath a trench coat. In a moment’s decision Jim brandishes his own firearm and shoots the teenage boy. Jim Bender stops a shooter-massacre before it happens. Jim Bender is a hero.

But then people learn the truth. And the truth is not what they 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. Do men know how to behave like men anymore?

What will happen to men?
