About The Film:
Every year, almost 40,000 people are killed by guns in America. Each shooting devastates and forever changes the victim’s family and friends. The new feature documentary, Behind the Bullet, explores a side of gun violence that’s rarely talked about- the impact a shooting has on the shooter. The film answers the question, what does shooting and killing someone do to a person whose intentions are good. Each subject in the film tells the story of how the pull of a trigger, changed them emotionally, physically, psychologically, and spiritually. The complexity of each scenario plays out as they describe the conflicting emotions and moral injury that comes after a self-defense shooting, an accidental shooting or an unintentional shooting.
"Behind the Bullet" will be screened, with discussion following, on the IUB campus, October 27 @ 7 pm. TV Radio Building Room 251.
Panelists for the discussion include:
* Heidi Yewman, director and producer
* Will Little, film subject

* Paul Helmke, O'Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs
