Is it a knife because… is a film made at home, it is born by processes of film-making and parenthood crushing into each other.
The film carefully challenges notions of authority. The authority of parents, of image producers, and that which lurks outside the window. 
Is it a knife because… entangles love and violence with the most honest attempt to understand where light comes from.
