Announcing a special screening of a feature-length documentary:

Making a Killing: Guns, Greed & the NRA

Thursday, April 12, 2018, at 6:30 pm      

 at  Cape Cinema in Dennis 

.Ticket price: $10 – Tickets available at Cape Cinema box office and online at WWW.capecinema.com. Funds raised will be used for grant awards to support projects or activities that involve students or young adults in gun violence prevention efforts. This powerful documentary examines the gun violence epidemic in the US. With survivors’ stories; police film and audio; video clips of politicians and NRA officials; and

many statistics, the film analyzes the US gun violence crisis in five arenas:

(1) domestic and spousal abuse; (2) accidental deaths with unsecured guns in the home; (3)

gun trade as fuel for gang and urban violence; (4) suicide; and (5) mass shootings. It is raw, sorrowful, and compelling. Audience discussion follows the film, led by moderators with considerable experience in gun

violence education and prevention:

Rev. Kate Epperly, Coordinator, Cape Cod Fellowship of Reconciliation

Margy Mahrdt, Cape Cod Regional Rep.,  Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America

Donna Hannigan, Founding Member, Grandmothers Against Gun Violence of Cape Cod

This film is intended for mature audiences. It accurately represents the gun violence problem in

the US, and some of the descriptions of gun violence have the potential to re-traumatize

survivors of gun violence. Please consider this in your decision to attend or recommend the film

to others.  The film is not appropriate for children.

Telephone interviews can be arranged with representatives of the sponsoring organizations.
