When Claude Got Shot – Brad Lichtenstein (Milwaukee, Wisconsin)

When Claude Got Shot follows five years in the life of Claude Motley as he tries to recover mentally and physically from being shot in the face by 15 year old carjacker, Nathan King. The day after shooting Claude, Nathan was shot and paralyzed by Victoria Davison who used a conceal and carry gun to stop his attempt to rob her. With Claude's journey at the center, three strikingly unique experiences of gun violence, justice and healing unfold. A striver seeking to get back on track to a legal career, Claude persists through multiple surgeries, catastrophic health care bills and trauma that affects him and his family. All the while he and his wife remain engaged in the criminal justice process determining his shooter's fate. Torn between punishment and the injustice of mass incarceration of young black men, Claude reflects on his own life and its similarity to Nathan's. Ultimately, Claude discovers that the path to healing leads back to the boy who shot him. 2021; 97 min.
