BULLETPROOF explores the complexities of violence in schools by looking at the strategies employed to prevent it. The film observes the longstanding rituals that take place in American schools homecoming parades, basketball practice, morning announcements, and math class. Unfolding alongside these scenes are a collection of newer traditions lockdown drills, teacher firearms training, metal detector screenings, and school safety trade shows. BULLETPROOF asks what these rituals reflect back at us.
"A sober and sobering documentary on the ways in which mass shootings in American schools have impacted all those who use them." -Neil Young, Screen International
