On this episode we're jumping into 'The Impact Series' and the film '3 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets' as we talk with director Marc Silver.


Black Friday 2012: four boys in a red SUV pull into a gas station after spending time at the mall buying sneakers and talking to girls. With music blaring, one boy exits the car and enters the store, a quick stop for a soda and a pack of gum. A man and a woman pull up next to the boys in the station, making a stop for a bottle of wine. The woman enters the store and an argument breaks out when the driver of the second car asks the boys to turn the music down. 3½ minutes and ten bullets later, one of the boys is dead.


It's a tragic story about the epidemic of gun violence and the culture of escalating conflicts rather then de-escalating them.
