A cult object of Austrian invention and a best­ seller in the USA: the Glock. The semi-­automatic rapid­-fire weapon is one of Austria’s export hits, but not a lot about its questionable meaning reaches the public realm. In their impressive and precisely researched documentary, Weapon of Choice, Fritz Ofner and Eva Hausberger investigate the myth and history of the Glock: an Austrian story of look­ing the other way.
