SHELL SHOCKED, A PROVOCATIVE, NEW DOCUMENTARY
PUTS YOUTH AND GUN VIOLENCE FRONT AND CENTER IN THE NATIONAL CONVERSATION
Special Chicago Screening
CHICAGO INTERNATIONAL SOCIAL CHANGE FILM FESTIVAL
Saturday, September 28th, 4 pm
Show Place ICON
150 West Roosevelt Road
Chicago, IL 60605
Chicago, ILThe great Chicago area will have the opportunity to see SHELL SHOCKED, John Richies highly-anticipated documentary that places gun violence aimed at New Orleans youth front and center in the national conversation.
Filmed in New Orleans,SHELL SHOCKED presents testimony from the children and victims families who live under a daily threat of violence. The film also explores ideas and opinions of activists, community leaders, and city officials in an attempt to identify positive solutions to an extremely negative situation.
During the past decade, New Orleans murder rates have been four to six times higher than the national average. The victims are overwhelmingly young, African American males. This has been called New Orleans' greatest crisis and it has profound implications for the issue of gun violence and crime many American cities are facing.
By touring the country to screen the film, director John Richie and producer Jonathan Jahnke hope to not only raise awareness about the crisis in New Orleans, but also to further the discussion about gun crime nationally.

why bother !
There are too many negros with too many unregistered unlicensed gun in Chicago for police to make a difference.
Face it Chicago you lost the battle for control of the streets on the south side 40 years ago.
You should have, and could have come down hard on the black street gangs, you could of and should have taken the drugs, guns and illegal immigrants off the streets, but you did not.
The official city government police and the black community taught the black street gangs they can get way with anything and no one cares.
Come on man you have thousands of unsolved uninvestigated gun homicides which by logical extension means there are thousands of killers in your city and you have done nothing to bring them to justice.
The black community has sat on their collective hands and done nothing to end the violence. the black community should have and could have turned in the black gang morons with guns. tell the police the who, what when and where drugs are sold and gangs hang out.
See Detroit? that's where Chicago is headed, bankruptcy court with a vast waste land on the south side of the city.
I was born there the south side was a beautiful area 40 years ago, now a waste land.
you lost the battle for the city the black morons are in charge.
