“The Armor of Light” Premieres Today

October 30, 2015

The documentary The Armor of Light opens today! ProSocial is excited to be working with the production team to connect audiences with this thought-provoking film. Abigail Disney’s directorial debut, The Armor of Light follows Reverend Rob Schenck, an Evangelical minister who begins to question whether being pro-gun is consistent with being pro-life, and Lucy McBath, mother of murdered teen Jordan Davis, on their journey to reexamine gun violence through a moral lens.

At ProSocial, we’re assisting The Armor of Light’s production team in using this film as a tool to generate dialogue around gun violence—like by creating neutral post-screening discussion forums where people can have productive conversations about gun safety. As director Abigail Disney explains, “Miraculous things can happen when people put aside their differences and choose to inhabit the spaces they share.”

Watch the trailer to see for yourself the unique approach the film takes in opening dialogue on this issue, and then go see it in theaters!
