    • Synopsis
    • Sundance 2016. This is the definitive film on the gun epidemic in America. A drastic rise in mass shootings has ripped across the US in recent years. Despite a growing body count and the chorus of outrage that comes with it, America has failed to respond. The film explores why this is and how the firearms lobby group the NRA became such a powerful voice in American life. Searing and powerful, Under the Gun ultimately gives a human face to a crisis that is scarring the conscience of a nation.
