Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun? is a documentary and multimedia performance originally screened/performed at Sundance in 2017. The director, Travis Wilkerson, relates a dark incident from his family’s past—the murder of a black man by one of Wilkerson’s white ancestors — in a public display of corporate guilt and public penance. Wilkerson’s performance at LA Filmforum marks the film’s Los Angeles premiere, and possibly the final live version of the film before it finds a permanent home on disc and online.
