SPECIAL SCREENING OF THE NEW DOCUMENTARY FILM:
Tuesday, October 29th
7PM; Q&A 8:30
The Parkway Theater, 5 W North Ave, Baltimore
American Totem is a thought-provoking documentary offering new ways to think about firearms in modern society. In a time of great political, social, and economic change, the film explores the national narrative that Americans have a “special” relationship with firearms, exposing how that story was constructed. The film highlights gun-oriented organizations and their search for community. It also spotlights the costs of having easy access to firearms on communities (e.g., suicide, homicide) and the American political process. For more info on the film, visit: www.americantotem.org.
