I Declare War (2012)

Drama, Action, Comedy 1h 34m 2012

Audience Award Winner: 2012 Fantastic Fest OFFICIAL SELECTION: Toronto International Film Festival

”[A] surreal, strangely effective look at childhood imagination.” - New York Daily News

Armed with nothing more than twigs, their imaginations and a simple set of rules, a group of 12-year-olds engaged in a lively game of Capture the Flag in the neighborhood woods start dangerously blurring the lines between make-believe and reality. Rocks = Grenades. Trees = Control towers. Sticks = Submachine guns. The youthful innocence of the game gradually takes on a different tone as the quest for victory pushes the boundaries of friendship. The would-be warriors get a searing glimpse of humanity’s dark side as their combat scenario takes them beyond the rules of the game and into an adventure where fantasy combat clashes with the real world.
