Gabby Giffords Won’t Back Down tells the extraordinary story of former Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords: her relentless fight to recover following an assassination attempt in 2011, and her new life as one of the most effective activists in the battle against gun violence. Featuring extensive vérité filming of Gabby and her husband, astronaut-turned-Senator Mark Kelly; interviews with Barack Obama and other friends and colleagues; and exclusive access to stunning videos taken in the weeks following her near-death, this film is the story of a rising star transformed by gun violence, and a close-up portrait of the marriage that sustains her.

What the critics are saying:

This documentary is about resilience and advocacy, but most of all it is a love story.

Nell Minow

You walk away from this documentary admiring Giffords and fully appreciating why she was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom last week.

A film about grit. It’s a film about feminism, change-making, and defying adversity.
