One Deadly Weekend in America

A feature-length documentary about a perfectly average summer weekend in 2015 when 87 people across the USA were killed in incidences of gun violence. From South Central Los Angeles to South Caroline, the film tells the stories of seven young lives cut short by shootings and explores America’s troubling relationship with guns.

“Calmly and patiently building the stories of lives cut short by gunfire over one average weekend, this is a beautifully made, harrowing tribute to the victims.” 
The Guardian
