Under the Gun


2016 Season

Despite a growing body count at the hands of guns, and an outpouring of shock and outrage that comes with it, America 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? Filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig and Katie Couric (the team behind the 2014 Sundance Film Festival hit Fed Up) join forces again to create a documentary that is scrupulously comprehensive and includes voices from both sides of one of the most polarizing issues that is tearing America apart. Searing and powerful with never-before-seen footage of the shooting in Aurora, Under the Gun ultimately gives a human face to a crisis that is scarring the conscience of a nation.
