„Guns“ is a video based on a true story of the student pro- tests in Warsaw in 1968: during the strike, the authorities ordered the Polish Army Museum to drill through the barrels of all the pistols and rifles in their collection. This command was issued in fear of the guns falling into the hands of protesters. Museum staff disabled exhibits from as far back as the XVII century. All this begs the question of what might happen if the holes were sealed once more.
