Only a few lucky people were able to see the premiere of the documentary film A Girl And A Gun, a by Cathryne Czubek at the Coolidge Corner theatre in Boston.

Now, however, everyone can see this amazing film in the comfort or your own home.
From the film’s website:
Breaking through stereotypes, A Girl and A Gun reveals America’s diverse and far-ranging female gun community. It depicts how this community is portrayed by the media and targeted by the gun industry; and shows, through personal stories, how guns change women’s lives. The intimate and graphic portrayals in A Girl and A Gun are of women who’ve carved themselves a home in the gun community, but their personal journeys in one way or another reflect the same issues every woman faces today.

It is getting reviews like these:


“Neither overtly pro- nor anti-firearms, “A Girl and a Gun” explores the many ambiguities, real and symbolic, surrounding gun ownership, even as its feminine focus entirely changes the terms of the debate. Czubek’s documentary excels at exploring contradictory facets of her subject.”-Ronnie Scheib, VARIETY


“Shines light on a worthy subject… anyone who walks out not aching for a discussion wasn’t paying attention.”-Maitland McDonagh, FILM JOURNAL


Three Stars! “Director Cathryne Czubek’s well-researched, incredibly lively chronicle of the way guns are marketed to, coveted by, and portrayed with women is a vital glimpse into a cultural phenomenon.”-Joe Neumaier, NY DAILY NEWS

It is fast paced, beautifully edited and constantly entertaining or informing.

Cathryne, the film’s director and producer, strived to make the film non-political, focusing on real portraits of real women and their relationships to guns, good and bad.
