Director Jessica Solce’s documentary “No Control” examines the controversial issue of gun rights and was just announced as an entry in this year’s Doc NYC lineup.
The Unites States holds the highest rate of gun ownership per capita in the world. “Meanwhile, with each gun-related tragedy,” the film’s synopsis reads, “the question remains whether to regulate or to arm. Increasing demand, illegal distribution and emerging 3D technologies threaten to upend the traditional debate of gun control.”
In this exclusive trailer, some of Solce’s many interview subjects address the complex issue at hand.
“What began as a simple premise of questioning – what does gun control mean, what is the efficacy of the laws being discussed and/or implemented and will these laws work to lower the rate of gun deaths in the US – then morphed into a much larger and timely discussion of freedom, control, regulations and the variant levels we are willing to demand them,” said Solce in her filmmaker statement.
