This event is free but an RSVP is requested.

What they're saying about "Under the Gun": 

“Billed by Sundance as “scrupulously comprehensive and decidedly fair,” the film looks at why, after one mass shooting after another, lawmakers have not taken meaningful action.” -- The New York Times

“It’s a tight, slick polemic which doesn’t shy from the complexity surrounding the debate or the fact it wants you the viewer to get up and do something about it. With Soechtig’s track record, more than a few people probably will.” -- The Guardian

"The film’s achievement is its deep understanding of the people who worship guns…Under the Gun acknowledges that gun control won’t solve everything, but it makes a profound target of the gun fetishists who seem to value their rights more than they do life itself.” -- The BBC
