The Soul Box Project presents screening of “Behind the Bullet”

October 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Soul Box Project is hosting a free screening of Behind the Bullet to deepen awareness of untold stories from the U.S. gunfire epidemic. Many thanks to director Heidi Yewman for embracing this partnership.

This full length film takes an intimate, non-polarizing look at how taking a life forever changed four people emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. They describe the moral injury that comes after a self-defense, accidental or unintentional shooting, offering a new and unbiased perspective on gun violence.

Following the Q & A with the film’s director and Soul Box founder, Leslie Lee, there will be an opportunity to participate in a Soul Box Procession through Multnomah Village. This will be similar to when 36,000 Soul Boxes — representing the number of lives lost to gunfire in the United States in 2018 — were carried into the Oregon State Capitol last February. We will process out of the Multnomah Arts Center into Multnomah Village and its First Friday Artwalk, ending the evening on a note of hope and solidarity.

Register for this free film screening.
