CSUC President Gayle E. Hutchinson introduces “American Totem” at Bell Memorial Union auditorium Monday.

“American Totem,” a film exploring the topic of guns in America, was a project three years in the making which premiered as a free “sneak preview” public showing at the Chico State Bell Memorial Union on March 26, with hundreds of movie-goers nearly filling the 370-seat auditorium.

Political Science honor society Alpha Sigma Phi hosted the event and facilitated an audience Q-and-A panel discussion after the film.

The 80-minute documentary film was co-directed by Sue Hilderbrand and Dan Carter, faculty members at Chico State and community radio personalities at KZFR 90.1 FM. read more
