A Girl And A Gun Documentary


Independent filmmaker Cathryne Czubek is directing a documentary about female gun culture. The trailer is embedded below …

A Girl and A Gun presents a feminine perspective on an object whose history is deeply bound up with men and masculinity. Filmed throughout the US, this documentary delves into the psyche of the American gun world to investigate how women relate to guns and gun culture. Reaching far beyond Hollywood’s hypersexualized femme fatales, the film candidly explores the modern American woman through intimate portraits encompassing issues of protection, power, feminism, and violence. A Girl and A Gun is a complex and thoughtful meditation on a deadly serious issue. The intimate and graphic portrayals in A Girl and A Gun are of women who’ve carved themselves a home in the gun community, but their personal journeys in one way or another reflect the same issues every woman faces in today’s America.

I don’t know if the filmmaker is pro-gun, but she does not appear to be anti-gun. She was interviewed by the Huffington Post and would not get baited into making anti-gun comments …

Many thanks to Frank for the tip.
