The documentary by Katie Couric, Executive Producer and Narrator and Stephanie Soechtig, Director, moves from an overview of the broader history of gun violence to very specific and individual tragic experiences. Couric and Soechtig focus on both sides of the issue of gun violence in America. Winning accolades at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival and followed by a limited theatrical release, it is now being shown in cities across America. CAGV was contacted by the distributor Epix, to bring Under the Gun to Santa Barbara for this one time performance.
