During every spring in America, over 8,000 people are killed from gun violence, according to HBO. In honor of the very first National Gun Violence Awareness Day on Tuesday, June 2, HBO has released the first trailer for their upcoming documentary, "Requiem for the Dead: American Spring 2014."
From directors Nick Doob and Shari Cookson, "Requiem for the Dead" is made entirely from found footage, including social media posts, 9-1-1 calls, news stories and police files. The film tells the stories of those who have been killed by gunfire, whether from accidental violence, random shootings, family disputes or suicide. Hear those stories of those who have died, which is only a fraction of the 32,000 people killed in America each year, 88 per day, from gun violence.
Check out the exclusive trailer and see the film's premiere on Monday, June 22 at 9:00 p.m. ET on HBO.
