The Gangbuster

Director: Mark Adderley
Runtime: 16:30 minutes

A tale of stoic and unwavering determination. Meet OSCAR, an eleven year old boy (with asthma) on a mission to join a “gang”. His strategy is simple: badger an older boy, Kush, who he thinks must be “nice” simply because he “plays in goal.”
Is Oscar irritating? Yes. Is he persistent? Definitely. Is he innovative in his approach? For sure. Is he small for his age? Yes – he has a condition called Ring Chromosome 5 Syndrome. BUT he is also a young boy who quite simply doesn’t see skin color.
Meet The Gangbuster…when NOT seeing a difference… makes you very different.
