Did You Wonder Who Fired The Gun?

“In 1946, my great-grandfather murdered a black man named Bill Spann and got away with it.” So begins Travis Wilkerson’s critically acclaimed documentary, DID YOU WONDER WHO FIRED THE GUN?, which takes us on a journey through the American South to uncover the truth behind a horrific incident and the societal mores that allowed it to happen. Acting as narrator and guide, Wilkerson spins a strange, frightening tale, incorporating scenes from To Kill a Mockingbird, the music of Janelle Monáe and Phil Ochs, and the story of Rosa Parks’ investigation into the Recy Taylor case, as well as his own family history, for a gripping investigation into our collective past and its echoes into the present day.

Followed by live video Q&A with filmmaker Travis Wilkerson.

Tonight! Join us for a FREE screening of the short documentary, Mack Wrestles! The night includes a performance by the film’s composer, Kafari and a Q&A with the directors moderated by Candy’s.
