"In 2013, in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, a Quinnipiac University poll revealed that 91% of Americans support comprehensive background checks that could prevent thousands of similar gun violence tragedies nationwide. 91%: A Film about Guns in America allows for those permanently affected by the aftermath of gun violence to have a voice. The survivors of these tragedies tell their heartbreaking stories of loss, pain, and a heroic search for hope in a nation stalled in a senseless gun control debate. Every story details agony. Carolyn Tuft lost her daughter Kirsten Hinckley in the 2007 killing spree at Salt Lake City's Trolley Square Mall. Once physically active, Carolyn can barely take a few steps without exhaustion--doctors could not remove all the metal shot in her body. In Portland, Maine, Wayne and Judi Richardson lost their daughter Darien days after she was shot in her bedroom by an intruder. The gun that was used was purchased at a "private" gun show--later used to kill a young man a month after Darien's murder. In 1999, a Neo-Nazi shot six-year- old Joshua Stepakoff at the Los Angeles Jewish Community Center. Joshua continues to live on alert while attending college."-- Publisher's web site.

Hundreds of thousands of cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years they've wandered in and out of people's lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, these animals live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame, and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.

"In 2012, California amended its "Three Strikes" law--one of the harshest criminal sentencing policies in the country. The passage of Prop. 36 marked the first time in U.S. history that citizens voted to shorten sentences of those currently incarcerated. Within days, the reintegration of thousands of "lifers" was underway. The Return examines this unprecedented reform through the eyes of those on the front lines--prisoners suddenly freed, families turned upside down, reentry providers helping navigate complex transitions, and attorneys and judges wrestling with an untested law. At a moment of reckoning on mass incarceration, what can California's experiment teach the nation?"-- Container.

"Since 2010, 288 laws regulating abortion providers have been passed by state legislatures. In total, 44 states and the District of Columbia have measures subjecting abortion providers to legal restrictions not imposed on other medical professionals. Unable to comply with these far-reaching and medically unnecessary laws, clinics have taken their fight to the courts. As the U.S. Supreme Court decides in 2016 whether individual states may essentially outlaw abortion (Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt), Trapped follows clinic workers and lawyers who are on the front lines of the battle to keep abortion safe and legal for millions of American women"-- Container.
