This pre-release event is the only screening in the Delaware Valley before Under the Gun airs on the EPiX network. It will be followed by a discussion conducted by Delaware Coalition Against Gun Violence and Movement for a Culture of Peace.
Variety reported that “In “Under the Gun,” Couric and director Stephanie Soechtig (“Fed Up”) examine why, despite the increase in deaths at the hands of guns and the outpouring of shock and outrage that comes with it, our nation has failed to respond with meaningful action. What is keeping the two sides of this debate — those favoring stricter gun control laws and Second Amendment purists like the NRA — from finding common ground? Through the lens of families impacted by the mass shootings in Newtown, Aurora, Isla Vista, Tucson, as well as the daily gun violence in Chicago, the film examines why our national politicians are refusing to act and what is being done at the state and local levels. The filmmakers decided not to mention the names, nor show the photos, of any shooters in the documentary.”
The film was an official selection at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. The Sundance Institute wrote: “Rather than becoming a screeching polemic that plays to its intended audience, Under the Gun is a fair look at both sides of the national debate.”
