NCJW partners with film festival to present a look at gun violence

The Bergen County section of the National Council of Jewish Women is sponsoring a film at the 2016 Teaneck International Film Festival this weekend. This is the first year that NCJW BCS has joined TIFF as a partner. With state Senator and NCJW life member Loretta Weinberg, it will sponsor Robert Greenwald’s new documentary, “Making a Killing: Guns, Greed, and the NRA.” The film will be screened on Sunday, November 6, at 2:15 p.m., at Temple Emeth, 1666 Windsor Road, Teaneck.

“Making a Killing” features personal stories from people across the country who have been affected by gun violence, including survivors and victims’ families. The film shows how the powerful gun companies and the NRA resist responsible legislation for the sake of profit, putting people in danger. It looks into gun tragedies, including unintended shootings, domestic violence, suicides, mass shootings, and trafficking, and concludes with suggestions about actions that people can take to end the profit-driven crisis.

Senator Weinberg and producer Tara Kelton will participate in a talkback after the screening. NCJW welcomes the opportunity to sponsor this film because it is committed to using education, advocacy, and outreach to eliminate the threat of gun violence in our communities.

Tickets available online and at Teaneck Cinemas. or (201) 203-1723.
