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 explores the modern American woman through intimate portraits encompassing issues of protection, power, feminism, and violence. These intimate and graphic portrayals are of women who’ve carved themselves a home in the gun community, but their personal journeys reflect the issues every woman faces in today’s America.
