GUNLAND is a Documentary Film that peers into the lives of urban youth through a raw and realistic lens. It shows how a community ravaged by gun violence causes kids to be afraid to walk the streets, go to school, and to play!!!
GUNLAND brings to film the neighborhood violence that families have to deal with on a daily basis, and just how it has become such a daunting task.
Parents try and protect their children from the gangs and the shootings, but to no avail. Kids can be shot just standing in front of their house or corner store for seemingly no reason.
Desperate times call for desperate measures and communities are desperate to find ways to protect themselves and restore their communities. It’s hard to feel hopeful when you feel as if the law doesn’t serve you and isn’t protecting you from the violence that you live with every day.
