Movies That Matter Series partners with HELP of Door County Screening:
Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and The NRA

About the Film: Directed by Robert Greenwald, the film tells the stories of how guns, and the billions made off of them, affect the lives of everyday Americans. It features personal stories from people across the country affected by gun violence, including survivors and victims’ families. The film exposes how the powerful gun companies and the NRA are resisting responsible legislation for the sake of profit – and thereby putting people in danger. It looks into gun tragedies that include unintentional shootings, domestic violence, suicides, mass shootings and trafficking and what we can do to put an end to this profit-driven crisis. (2016, 103 minutes)

A discussion after the movie will be led by HELP of Door County.
