Watch the Trailer for HBO's Gun Violence Documentary 'Requiem for the Dead'

Directors Nick Doob and Shari Cookson tell the stories of some of those who died from gunfire in the spring of 2014. Using found footage, social media, news accounts, 911 calls and police files, "Requiem for the Dead" explores the aftermaths of accidental shootings, suicides, family disputes and random acts of violence through the eyes of those who survived the victims.

Doob and Cookson collaborated on HBO’s Emmy-winning “The Alzheimer’s Project: The Memory Loss Tapes” and Emmy-nominated “Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life & Times of Katrina Gilbert."

Below, see the emotional "Requiem for the Dead" trailer, which debuts today in honor of the first national Gun Violence Awareness Day.
