New Doc About Teens & Violence, Made By Teens, Premieres In Harlem This Month

Perhaps no documentary film is more prescient today than
the new documentary short, Triggering
Wounds
, which deals with the crisis of teen violence in New York. 

Even more noteworthy is that the film itself was actually made
by teens themselves, who have been affected by the violence, and want to make a positive change.

The film was written and directed by members of the Maysles Institute’s Teen Producers Academy
and their production company, No Straight
Media
, in partnership with Harlem
Hospital Center
and The New York
County District Attorney’s Office.

The film chronicles families, first responders, law
enforcement and community leaders, providing an intimate portrait of a
community struggling to understand, heal, and transform in the face of gun
violence.

The short makes its premieres on Friday
April 26th
at 7PM at Harlem Hospital Center Auditorium, on Malcolm X Blvd and 135th St; and then will open the following day, Saturday
April 27th
for an extended engagement until Friday
May
3rd, at the Maysles Cinema, located on 343
Lenox Avenue
near 127th Street

The screenings at the Cinema will be followed by panel discussions.

Somebody needs to make a film from the perspective of the perpetrators. The victims voices are powerful but we need t I find out what motivates the aggressors in order to offer suitable alternatives for them. We can't just write em off as evil.
