9th Annual ReelAbilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival Featured Event
Central Library, Dweck Center
Kills on Wheels
Dir. Attila Till
102 min, Hungary, Narrative
In this wildly original dark comedy, two teenaged boys living in a facility for children with disabilities are looking for a way out. When they befriend a gruff firefighter-turned-hitman who enlists them to be his accomplice wheelchair assassins, they enter a surreal world of gangsters and guns, all the while coming to terms with their respective disabilities. With stellar cinematography, a mix of live action with graphic animation, and a dark sense of humor, Kills on Wheels successfully blends genres, dealing with issues of invisibility, prejudice, and loneliness as it rolls on to exciting, offbeat places. Hungary’s 2016 Oscar submission for Best Foreign Film.
