Book now at: http://miff.com.au/program/film/two-shots-fired International Panorama | D Martin Rejtman | Argentina/Chile, 2014 Sixteen-year-old Mariano has just shot himself. Stranger things will happen. New Argentine pioneer Martín Rejtman returns with a frequently droll feature that mines absurdist humour from random incident. Teenage Mariano survives an impulse suicide attempt, only to discover the bullet in his chest sets off metal detectors – and complicates his ability to play medieval flute. Meanwhile, his brother is romancing a local weirdo, mum is on a bizarre seaside trip with the music teacher, and everyone seems more concerned about the missing family dog. Combining unusual narrative choices and a wry comedic tone, Rejtman takes the audience on a strange and moving journey through the vagaries of existence. "[Rejtman's] fatalistic, obsessive-compulsive, bone-dry jokes get funnier and more profound the longer they are kept up, until they start to sink in the viewer's stomach like a dead weight." – Cinema Scope
