Fight for your right not to be shot at school

At this point school shootings are viewed as a fixture of American society, and both the media and the public have long since grown accustomed to the reality of teenagers murdering their fellow students. In US KIDS we are introduced to a group of survivors of the 2018 Parkland shooting in Florida who refuse to accept this grotesque and absurd status quo. Centering on a remarkable cast of fearless young Americans, Kim A. Snyder has crafted moving and inspiring documentary about the journey from victim to activist.
