Synopsis

Kill or be killed: this is the one, simple rule of the “Game of Death,” which seven kids decide to play on a normal, sunny day. But the fun soon turns into horror when the young people realize that if they don’t kill, they themselves will be the ones to die. An escalation of violence spreads throughout the city, where everyone could become a victim of the homicidal fury of the players, whose minds are clouded by the desire to win, at the expense of their own survival.

Director statement

“The movie’s intent is to play with the audience. It destabilizes and questions them with its tone and subject, but also with esthetic and production choices. We are the generation of the internet, which feeds us with video clips, gifs, advertisements and all kinds of visual orgies. Game of Death embraces all these universes to create its own. An eclectic approach which evolves with the madness of the characters. Videogames, mixed media, iPhones, animation: there are no rules.”
