After Parkland: Documentaries as Difference Makers

60 min


No upcoming showtimes scheduled.


It began with Columbine—but, tragically, it didn’t end there. We’re talking about school shootings. Built around the DFF42 documentary After Parkland, this panel will pose a difficult question: Can films that deal with school shootings really make a difference? We’ll focus less on issues of gun control (although they’re unavoidable) than on the ways in which documentaries can have real-world impact, spurring change in awareness, behavior, and even legislation. Joining moderator Robert Denerstein will be After Parkland directors Jake Lefferman and Emily Taguchi, student activists, and others.
