CLICK ABOVE TO VIEW TRAILER
Following in the footsteps of internationally recognized We Breathe, We Live: Brotherly Love Protest Stories, the new film TRIGGER is both a call to understanding and a call to action about the roles each of us has to play in combatting the gun violence epidemic in Philadelphia and beyond.
About the film: A father who lost his son, a trauma nurse at a city hospital, a high school principal, community activists, doctors, scholars, shooters, victims, and their families all share their stories revealing layers of hurt that extend beyond the individual, family, and first responders to entire communities in need of healing. And yet they each search for hope with a vengeance. These storytellers are committed to using their horrific experiences to help others. For some, resilience and hope are key elements of survival. TRIGGER is both a call to understanding and a call to action. Each of us has a role to play in combatting this gun violence epidemic.
TRIGGER will be screened throughout the city and on-air beginning in November 2022.
TRIGGER: Film Screening Monday, Oct. 17.
