HamptonsFilm is pleased to continue to curate the hit screening series NOW SHOWING, featuring acclaimed first-run, art house, independent, and world cinema available to screen in the privacy of your own home.

This week, we’re pleased to recommend Kim A. Snyder’s US KIDS, the empowering story of student activism that had its New York premiere at HIFF28.


Directed by Kim A. Snyder
(2020, USA, 123 minutes)

When a gunman entered the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day 2018, gruesome images of the deadliest high school shooting in US history quickly emerged. In the massacre’s aftermath, students unite in their frustration at the inaction of elected officials. Over the next month, their actions grow into the nationwide March For Our Lives movement, the largest youth protest in American history. Peabody Award-winning director Kim A. Snyder (NEWTOWN) follows the teenage activists as they fight for gun control and compel the political system into action. Insightful and rousing, US KIDS chronicles a new generation of youth leaders and their remarkable dedication to enact change.

“Offers a potent testimony to the impact of citizen protest.” Variety
