Everyday afterschool, a group of thirteen-year old friends congregate in the woods for an inventive series of war games. Using their imaginations, they transform sticks into sub-machine guns and water balloons into grenades. This is no Disney G-rated family fun here as our heroes speak like real kids and brandish heavy artillery. Their friendships, loyalties and the tactics of their game are tested to the ultimate degree as tensions turn this afternoon’s game into the war to end all wars. Invoking films like Stand By Me and Lord of the Flies, I Declare War is a film that is bound to provoke controversy.
