Want to know more about the documentary ‘Freedia Got a Gun’ and where to stream it? We’ve got you covered.
What is Freedia Got a Gun About?
‘Freedia Got a Gun’ brings viewers the first-hand accounts of NOLA residents that have lost loved ones to gun violence, a group in which Freedia herself is included. In January 2018, Big Freedia’s younger brother Adam Ross was gunned down at the age of 35. To date, police authorities don’t have any leads on the killer. Big Freedia reveals that after the devastating loss of her brother, many people called to offer their services for retaliation. She’d declined, horrified, and feeling that perpetuating violence would bring nothing. But her personal tragedy started Big Freedia down the path to campaign against gun violence and help victims of the evil epidemic heal mentally and emotionally.
The documentary is not just a compilation of statistics and expert opinions, but an incredibly personal and moving account of the local people involved. We get to see why a 14-year-old boy is compelled to carry a gun on him to feel safe in his own town. We also get to hear from a reformed convict about his experience with gun violence and its aftermath. Overall, Big Freedia’s documentary is a hard-hitter, posing some tough questions, and offering some coherent solutions that might help America beat gun violence.
