Boy Meets Gun selected for Busan

5 September 2019

Dutch feature film Boy Meets Gun by director Joost van Hezik is selected for the upcoming edition of the prestigious Busan International Film Festival. The film will celebrate its world premiere in the World Cinema programme.

Boy Meets Gun is Van Hezik's debut feature and is written by Willem Bosch and produced by Pupkin in co-production with VPRO. International sales are handled by Media Luna. 



Boy Meets Gun is a black comedy/crime film in which a bored evolutionary philosopher gets caught up in a robbery and accidentally gets hold of the murder weapon. Seized by a renewed appetite for life, he decides to keep the gun. A true romance blossoms between the boy and the gun, not without consequences. 

Two Dutch minority co-productions have also been selected for Busan and will have their Asian premiere in the World Cinema-section: A Tale of Three Sisters* by Turkish filmmaker Emin Alper, that world premiered in Berlinale's Competition, and the Czech/Dutch/Latvian co-production A Certain Kind of Silence* by Michal Hogenauer, that had its world premiere earlier this summer at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. Both films have been co-produced by Amsterdam-based Circe Films. 

The 24th Busan International Film Festival takes place 3 to 12 October: www.biff.kr

*Supported by the Netherlands Film Fund
