Big Freedia, the Queen of Bounce, is the subject of our new feature-length documentary, Freedia Got a Gun, which premieres at the AFI Docs Film Festival on Saturday, June 20, streaming for 24 hours at 12:01AM.
The film shines a spotlight on our country’s continuous struggle with gun violence through the lens of the New Orleans hero and international bounce superstar.

This film offers an impactful message from those who have directly been affected by one of our country’s most pressing epidemics.
Following the premiere, watch a recorded discussion led by journalist Tre’vell Anderson with director Chris McKim and subjects Big Freedia and Dr. Ashonta Wyatt.
