About

PREMIERING NOV 15th @ 9:30pm & NOV 19th @ 12:45pm at IFC CENTER

It all began on Memorial Day weekend 2013 when Greg Bokor shared his idea for an interactive art project called Erase.  Erase would be an interactive installation, a 20 x 7 ft pencil drawing that would not be completed until the audience erased it.  The idea of capturing Greg's journey set the groundwork for an exploration of the gun debate.

One month later I was sitting down in Austin, Texas with Cody Wilson of Defense Distributed and the 3D printed plastic gun The Liberator.

The journeys of Greg Bokor and Cody Wilson are thusly the lynchpins within a discussion including state senators, advocates, activists, and regular citizens.  The film's fascinating and oppositional figures are given equal time to duel out their thoughts & invite us into their world.  

The impetus for making NO CONTROLwas to create a forum of discussion exploring both sides of the debate without imposing bias.  I simply wanted to learn.  

What I discovered was that the futility of seeing the gun debate as simply that of material ownership is to overlook the historical, cultural, and individual debate on choice and freedom.

What began as a simple premise of questioning - What does the idea of Gun Control mean, what is the efficacy of the laws being discussed and/or implemented and will these laws work to lower the rate of gun deaths in the US – then morphed into a much larger and timely discussion of freedom, control, regulations and the variant levels we are willing to demand them.

WHAT WILL YOU BE SUPPORTING? 

Your contributions will go directly to covering the costs of Post-Production.

DOCNYC has provided an incredible platform from which to launch NO CONTROL.  In preparation for a theatrical experience, Post-Production was absolutely necessary to provide a level finesse to the sound and look.   

WHAT DOES THIS FILM MEAN TO ME?

NO CONTROL has been a madly educational, obsessive, and all encompassing journey for me and I’m thrilled that DOCNYC has chosen to premier the film.

It is my very first feature film & it means more than I can describe.

FILM SYNOPSIS

With over 300 million firearms, the U.S. holds the highest rate of gun ownership per capita in the world. Meanwhile, with each gun-related tragedy, the question remains whether to regulate or to arm. Increasing demand, illegal distribution and emerging 3D technologies threaten to upend the traditional debate of gun control.

As discussed in interviews from Austin to Grand Rapids, Denver to New York City, NO CONTROL seeks to address the efficacy of gun laws and the ongoing debate between personal freedom and public safety in a candid discussion of one of the most complex, contentious issues in American history.
