Film Screening: Under the Gun

Sunday, June 24, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm


The Medford Film Collaborative and Sanctuary United Church of Christ are presenting  a screening and discussion of four films this summer that will consider the American disease of violence. The films will take viewers on a journey through the causes and conditions of some of America’s dis-ease including the gun debate, toxic masculinity, the impact of pornography on our sexuality, and the ease with which we use violence toward those who are different.

The first film in the series is “Under the Gun,” which examines the events and people who have kept the gun debate fierce and the progress slow, even as gun deaths and mass shootings continue to increase. Through the lens of families impacted by the mass shootings in Newtown, Aurora, Isla Vista and Tucson, as well as those who experience daily gun violence in Chicago, the documentary looks at why politicians are finding it difficult to act and what is being done at the state and local levels. The film is executive produced and narrated by Katie Couric and directed by Stephanie Soechtig.

The second film in the series will be “Tough Guise 2: Violence, Manhood and American Culture.” It will be screened at 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 22, at a location to be determined.

The third and fourth films of the series, titled “Violence, An American Dis-Ease: How Do We Treat It?”, will be announced.
