Oscar-nominated documentary director Julie Cohen will do a Zoom call and a Q&A session with the Charlottesville community on Aug. 3, starting at 6:30 p.m. about her newly-released "Gabby Giffords Won’t Back Down" documentary.
The movie presents former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords’ fight to recover from the 2011 assassination attempt and her transition to becoming one of the most prominent activists against gun violence.
The film features exclusive footage following the assassination attempt and encompasses interviews with Barack Obama, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Rep. Jim Clyburn and Giffords other friends.
Cohen was the producer of the Cinema for Peace Award-winning movie “RBG” and the Peabody Award-winning “My Name is Pauli Murray” film.
The documentary was previously shown at Violet Crown but is currently playing in theaters nationwide and on Aug 5., it will be available on Amazon, AppleTV, iTunes and other streaming services.
The Zoom event was organized by the Charlottesville Democratic Committee and co-sponsored by Moms Demand Action Charlottesville, The B.U.C.K Squad and Students Demand Action at UVa.
