Directed by Kim A. Snyder
Determined to turn unfathomable tragedy into action, the teenage survivors of Parkland, Florida catalyze a powerful, unprecedented youth movement that spreads with lightening speed across the country, as a generation of mobilized youth take back democracy in this powerful coming-of-age story.
The students at Marjory Stoneman protest against the national gun-violence epidemic in America and launched a global youth movement that included more than 800 groups across the globe, including in London, Madrid, Rome and Tokyo. As the moment catalyzes into a full-on activism, traumatized students dramatically find their courage to raise their voices even higher. This doc covers 18 months of ‘March For Our Lives’ moments about ‘normal ass kids’ who are standing up bravely with resilience and empathy.
From Kim A. Snyder, director of the Peabody Award-winning documentary Newtown, comes a rousing story of a generation of youth leaders determined to take the reigns and fight for justice. Featuring Emma Gonzalez, David Hogg and other internationally known founders the film shows how teenage activists set out to build a a global campaign that addresses racial justice, a public health crisis and in the process, compelled the establishment and the world media to take notice.
