UNDER THE GUN

STEPHANIE SOECHTIG AND KATIE COURIC RE-TEAM
TO EXAMINE GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA
IN UNDER THE GUN

Powerful Sundance Favorite
Debuts on Digital HD and On Demand May 31

From award winning journalist / bestselling author Katie Couric and director Stephanie Soechtig comes, UNDER THE GUN, a critically acclaimed, stirring and insightful film about America’s love-hate affair with guns. Couric and Soechtig—the team responsible for Fed Up, which looked at the food industry and the alarming spread of childhood obesity—examine why, despite the increase in deaths at the hands of guns and the outpouring of shock and outrage that comes with it, our nation has failed to respond with meaningful action. The Epix Original Documentary, which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, followed by a limited theatrical release, will be available on Digital HD and On Demand on May 31 from Lionsgate.

In an emotionally charged election year, UNDER THE GUN takes a deeper look at what is keeping the two sides of this debate—those favoring stricter gun laws and Second Amendment purists like the NRA—from finding common ground. Through the lens of families impacted by the mass shootings in Newtown, Aurora, Isla Vista and Tucson, as well as daily gun violence in Chicago, the film examines what is being done at the state and local levels and how individuals can educate themselves and take action on the issue.

Subjects and organizations featured in the documentary include: Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly (Americans for Responsible Solutions); Jackie and Mark Barden (Sandy Hook Promise); Sandy and Lonnie Phillips (Jessi’s Message); John Feinblatt and Richard Martinez (Everytown for Gun Safety); Victoria Montgomery (Open Carry Texas); Shannon Watts (Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America); Pamela and Tom Bosley (Purpose Over Pain); The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and Law Center To Prevent Gun Violence.
