Movie Night: Us Kids Film
June 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In preparation for our guest presentation Sunday morning June 6 around Gun Control, we will gather via Zoom at 7 p.m. on Tuesday June 1 to watch the important, difficult, challenging and multi-award winning 98 minute documentary US KIDS. It follows the survivors of the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, who organized the monumental March for Our Lives against gun violence while honoring their dead and working to take back democracy.
From Kim A. Snyder, director of the Peabody Award-winning documentary Newtown, comes an insightful, rousing coming-of-age story of a generation of youth leaders determined to take the reigns and fight for justice at a most critical time in our nation’s history. Sparked by the plague of gun violence ravaging their schools, Us Kids chronicles the March For Our Lives movement over the course of several years, following X Gonzalez, its co-founders, survivors and a group of teenage activists as they pull off the largest youth protest in American history and set out across the country and globally to build an inclusive and unprecedented youth movement that addresses racial justice, a growing public health crisis and shocking a political system into change.
