After the Shooting is an interactive documentary aimed at creating a community conversation around the the violent murders of three Muslim students, Deah Barakat, Yusor Abu-Salha and Razan Abu-Salha in Chapel Hill, North Carolina in February 2015. It tries to do so by discussing the way that larger themes of religion, gun control, media, and mental health impact violence in the U.S. and abroad. The project is designed elevate the conversation, raise critical questions and offer a nuanced perspective of the complexity of tragedy.
The project was featured on several news outlets, including MTV News, Mediastorm, GOOD Magazine and the LA Times.
