Gabby Giffords Won’t Back Down Film Screening
September 20, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Watch the award-winning documentary Gabby Giffords Won’t Back Down (rated PG-13) at White Lake Community Library Wednesday, September 20th, 6-8pm, and stay for the short discussion following. A representative from the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Department will join us for the discussion. Light refreshments will be available.
Gabby Giffords Won’t Back Down tells the extraordinary story of former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords: her relentless fight to recover following an assassination attempt in 2011, and her new life as one of the most effective activists in the battle against gun violence. Featuring extensive footage of Gabby and her husband, astronaut-turned-Senator Mark Kelly; interviews with Barack Obama and other friends and colleagues; and exclusive access to stunning videos taken in the weeks following her near-death, this film is the story of a rising star transformed by gun violence, and a close-up portrait of the marriage that sustains her.
