Student Gun Violence Documentary to Premiere at All Saints in Pasadena

Published : Friday, July 27, 2018 | 3:15 PM

On Tuesday, July 31st All Saints Church in Pasadena will host the premiere screening of Crowd in the Crosshairs — an emotionally provocative and informative short documentary directed by student filmmakers Grey Ingrassia and Tess Fungo. Reflecting on the Columbine, Sandy Hook, Las Vegas and Parkland shootings as well as the March for Our Lives movement it tackles the current state of gun violence in America.

Inspired by the Parkland shooting and his experience marching with his peers in the Washington D.C. March for Our Lives, sixteen year old filmmaker Grey Ingrassia decided to make a film about gun violence in America. “I was inspired to make the film after hearing a youth from Parkland express his fear for the longevity of the movement,” said Ingrassia. “He was afraid that it would die out after the march. Upon returning to L.A. I decided to do what I could to help see that this did not happen: and that is how Crowd in the Crosshairs was born.”

“It is fantastic that All Saints is supporting young filmmakers such as myself who are beginning to use film as a medium to express one’s spirituality,” said Ingrassia. “All Saints is also the organization that sent me to Washington D.C. in the first place. Without them, the film would not exist.”
