The vicious cycle of gun violence never ever ends as depicted in the video #TheMostViciousCycle--posted last month as a ScreenWork entry--with music by Kesha, her brother Sage and rapper, Chika. Now the video comes with narration--from March For Our Lives co-founder Sarah Chadwick, and Marla Pike, mother of a Chicago shooting victim--which explains hidden aspects and meanings in the video, shedding light on the work while reminding viewers that the only way to stop the cycle of tragedy, human loss and violence is to #VoteForOurLives.

The original video and now the story behind the video both came from McCann NY, directed by Ben Smith at Mill+, with VFX from The Mill.

Just like gun violence in America, the video repeats over and over again--and in chain-reaction Rube Goldberg-esque fashion. The piece features a song, written the day after the Parkland shooting by Sage who was a senior in high school at the time. The song is performed by Sage, Kesha and up-and-coming rapper Chika. The film includes a memorial scene, honoring actual victims of gun violence from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, the Pulse Nightclub shooting, as well as everyday gun violence in different parts of Chicago. Footage supplied by David Hogg, from inside his classroom the day-of, is also included, to remind viewers of the personal nature of the gun-violence epidemic. Everyone involved hopes to increase voter turnout and change gun laws forever.
