Détruisez-vous (with its implacable subtitle 'The Silent Gun') was shot between March and April 1968. The title - A film shot in April 1968 - is written on a piece of cardboard, with well-deserved pride: Bard was one of the few at the time to exhibit such clairvoyance. (...) Detruisez-vous is, moreover, a ‘primitive’ film which breaks all the rules of film-making. It’s the first Zanzibar film (and predates the very naming of the movement), an attempt to make a film which defies the rules of production, the production line of commerce.

Contains a 44-page booklet about the film with texts by Alain Jouffroy and Philippe Azoury.
