Weapon of Choice

Fritz Ofner
“They never fail.” The Glock pistol has been fetishised in films and the arts, and is a regular topseller in the international arms market. For the first time, the filmmaking duo Fritz Ofner and Eva Hausberger tell the story of the rise of the Glock: an Austrian design that became the most sought-after service and murder weapon worldwide. Tracing the web of power, money, violence and politics, the film portrays the dark sides of globalisation and tells an Austrian tale of willful ignorance.
