Description

Canada is the only country in the world repealing gun control. Up In Arms reveals how gun enthusiasts are winning converts and building a powerful lobby in the image of America’s NRA (National Rifle Association). Meanwhile, in Toronto’s marginalized neighbourhoods, the film follows youths involved in a program designed to keep them away from guns, gangs, and drugs. In these strikingly different communities, connected only by the gun, perspectives are set against the backdrop of disturbing statistics about the relationship between gun deregulation and gun violence.

“The best thing about Pequeneza’s approach is her slow, methodical style that gets us right into the debate and her refusal to go for quick fix answers.” - Jim Bawden
