A Girl and a Gun

A Girl and a Gun presents a feminine perspective on an object whose history is deeply bound up with men and masculinity. Filmed throughout the US, this documentary delves into the psyche of the American gun world. Reaching far beyond Hollywood’s hypersexualized femmes fatales, the film candidly explores the modern American woman through intimate portraits encompassing issues of protection, power, feminism, and violence. A Girl and A Gun is a complex and thoughtful meditation on a deadly serious issue. [Synopsis courtesy of DOC NYC]
