Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights to Joe Callander’s 95-second-long doc Tim and Susan have Matching Handguns (pictured), which world premieres at next month’s Sundance Film Festival.

The short is billed as being “a romantic tale of love, life, and the right to bear arms.” In a statement, Oscilloscope’s Dan Berger and David Laub said they would work out a way to distribute the film, in spite of its length.

Tim and Susan is a remarkably assured, economical and entertaining film,” the pair said in a statement. “Joe’s deft filmmaking and Tim and Susan’s undeniable connection will warm the cockles of your heart. We’re gonna figure out a way to put this film in front of your faces.”

Callander added: “I’ve been watching Oscilloscope films for years and it’s quite the unexpected honor to be working with them on this short. My first film was two minutes long, this one is 95 seconds. I’m hoping that if this trend continues, one day I’ll just wake up, sneeze, and everything will become pure light.”
