PITCH : Two nobodies find their ticket to the Parisian Golden Youth parties in the form of a bag filled with drugs, leading them in the mayhem of a rough police investigation.
Festival’s appreciation :
« It’s a character’s quest, it’s a fight, it’s a journey for these kids to rise from the dark side of the Paris’ pavement to try and reach their dreams. Through bad choices, luck and reality, the directors tell a story of freedom in their own way. A directorial debut to watch. »
It’s not the Gorillaz song but it could be. Producer / director Anthony Faure jumped from short film to his feature directorial debut on his own. A couple of friends, a crowdfunding campaign, and a lot of energy to show his abilities to make a full length film. Independent, new players in the game, KID WITH GUNS’ team is to keep an eye on, for sure.
