FILM IST. a girl & a gun is a film drama in five acts that takes one of the oldest themes in cinema and in humanity: the battle of the sexes. From the origin of the universe and the world, through the cooperation and confrontation between the gods and goddesses of creation: through the coexistence of man and woman in Paradise; through the desire, love, jealousy and hate between sexes by the light of Eros; to the escalation of their violent subjugation and exploitation in war and pornography in the mirror of Thanatos; to the solutions offered by wisdom, religion and politics in Plato’s “Symposium”: film images from the first four and half decades of cinema which were found after exhaustive research, and compiled in sequences and visual stories with new meanings.
