No More Killing (0+)

Germany , 2007, colour, 93 min.
Director: Wolfgang Bergmann
Non-lethal weapons were promoted and used to humanize social and political conflicts: in other words, to make sure no one dies during demonstrations and arrests. However, things did not went the way authorities wanted and soon the name had to be changed into “less-lethal” weapons because of too many “accidental” deaths along the way. NO MORE KILLING looks at the utopia of “soft bullets”, non-lethal confrontation and peaceful conflict resolution.
