On January 13th, 2020, gun owners from all across the country gathered in Richmond, VA, to protest stringent gun reform passed by Governor Ralph Northam. Director Phineas Alexander attended, armed with a Bolex camera, and asked to take moving portraits of those in attendance. The product, upsetting as it is important, speaks to the desperation felt by those on all sides of this political moment.
