This investigative documentary tracks the journey of Gun No. 6: Britain’s most wanted firearm. For over a decade during the early-2000s, when shootings in Britain were at their highest, Gun No. 6 changed hands to be used in 11 cases and 3 murders. The film tracks every shooting made by the gun using police reports, re-enactments and insight from those who witnessed or worked on the crimes.
With no-one who has fired the gun willing to speak, director James Newton brings together six former-perpetrators of gun crime to offer insight into the driving force behind violence in Britain today. Through the journey of Britain’s most deadly, illegal gun, this documentary begins to understand why violence and lethal weapons exist on the streets.
The opening night screening on Friday 12th October will be followed by a director Q&A.
