Texas Show Selection: “Her Name Was Max”

Her Name Was Max, a  short documentary about gun control from writer and director Shayan Asgharnia, bravely speaks out against allowing students to carry guns on campus. Told from the perspective of John Woods, a Virginia Tech student who lost his girlfriend Max in the 2007 campus shooting, we follow his journey to the University of Texas and his efforts to speaks to Congress about the mistakes of allowing guns for protection on a college campus. Gripping, emotional and daring, this work will leave you thinking and asking if it is truly safe to allow protective weapons on college campuses. It will be included in our Texas Show, Sunday Sept 25th at 9 PM at the Texas Theatre program at this year’s festival as one of our documentary selections.
