Kris Koenig is the mastermind behind the upcoming documentary titled Assaulted: Civil Rights Under Fire. The project started as a look into the gun control debate raging in California, but as the debate heated up nationwide this past winter they broadened their scope to include the national debate as well. The project has been funded entirely through the website Kickstarter (initial funding – second push), where individuals pledge their own money to support a cause they believe in, and the finished product is nearing release. Kris has released a trailer that has been approved by the MPAA for use in movie theaters (see it above). The film will be shown in a limited number of theaters starting on June 20th (list coming shortly), with an “on demand” style release system planned thereafter. And to be honest, it looks like it’s a pretty darn well made product.
Oh, and the narrator? Ice-T.
