Trigger Film Screening – Philly Story Fest
Join us for a one-of-a-kind Philadelphia film event.
Following in the footsteps of internationally recognized We Breathe, We Live: Brotherly Love Protest Stories, the First Person Arts documentary TRIGGER is both a call to understanding and a call to action about the roles each of us has to play in healing the gun violence epidemic in Philadelphia and beyond.
The film features storytellers from Philadelphia sharing their first-person, lived experiences with gun violence and their shared search for hope with a vengeance.
A father who lost his son, a trauma nurse at a city hospital, a high school principal, community activists, doctors, scholars, shooters, victims, and their families all share their stories revealing layers of hurt that extend beyond the individuals, families, and first responders to entire communities in need of healing.
Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Film begins at 7 pm.
Post-screening talkback following the film is moderated by Chad Dion Lassiter, MSW.
Directed by: Glenn Holsten.
Produced by: FreshFly Films
Presented by the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services, the DBHIDS Division of Planning Innovation, and the DBHIDS Engaging Males of Color Initiative.
