Short Film Against Gun Violence Wins Troy Perry Award in OUR PRIDE 2019 LGBTQ+ Student Video Competition
A moving short film that interweaves images of mass shootings with Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” and Martin Niemöller poem “First They Came” has earned 16-year-old filmmaker Odessa Shlain Goldberg the top honor in this year’s OUR PRIDE Video Fest competition.
The juried competition asks student filmmakers in schools and colleges to create and share digital stories about significant LGBTQ+ people, places and events that have shaped our world and are impacting the future.
“The film illustrates how passivity in the face of injustice is complicity during World War II, but instead reframes and rewrites the 1946 poem to focus on the prolific, devastating shootings in schools and public institutions,” said Odessa, a Tamalpais High School student in Mill Valley, California. “One of the horrific shootings commemorated is the Pulse Nightclub shooting in 2016 targeting the LGBTQ+ community. The final call to action of the video reminds the viewer to take action against gun violence by voting.”
