REQUIEM FOR THE DEAD: AMERICAN SPRING 2014 premiering exclusively on HBO Monday, June 22

Directed by Shari Cookson and Nick Doob (HBO’s Emmy®-winning The Memory Loss Tapes and Emmy®-nominated Paycheck to Paycheck: The Life and Times of Katrina Gilbert) REQUIEM focuses on the 32,000 deaths from gun violence in America and attempts to give meaning to these numbers by highlighting some of the estimated 8,000 people who died from gunfire last spring.

Told entirely through existing, found media – news accounts, police investigations, and social media including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and blog postings –REQUIEM FOR THE DEAD details the victims’ lives in the present-tense moments leading up to the shootings and demonstrates how each person’s death reverberates in many people’s lives.

REQUIEM FOR THE DEAD: AMERICAN SPRING 2014 was directed and produced by Shari Cookson and Nick Doob; executive producer, Sheila Nevins; senior producer, Nancy Abraham; producer, Sascha Weiss; edited by Shari Cookson, Nick Doob, Charlton McMillan.
