Following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that claimed 17 lives in early 2018, Japanese filmmaker Emily Taguchi and her team spent months with members of the grieving community, documenting their recovery and activism in the wake of devastating gun violence.

“After Parkland,” a 90-minute documentary co-directed by Taguchi and Jake Lefferman, premiered last month at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival. It chronicles a heart-wrenching journey in which student survivors and mourning families begin to resume their lives in the absence of loved ones, with many also taking up a national campaign for stricter gun laws.
