Some rituals of American schooling have held steady for generations: homecoming parades, senior proms, sports practices, math class. Alongside these are a collection of newer traditions: lockdown drills, teacher firearms training, metal detector screenings, and school safety trade shows. Rather than focus on the causes and effects of mass shootings, Bulletproof explores the emerging codes and growing industries of prevention strategies, and what they say about our society and priorities. Todd Chandler’s breakthrough documentary is a slow-burn cinematic meditation on the array of forces that shape the culture of violence in the United States.
