When preparing a film for the Reel 112 Film Festival in May, Edgewood Middle School students Evelyn Gehrig, Spencer Sabath and Jacob Hoyt knew they wanted to make a statement and they wanted to tackle an issue that was important to them.

The trio directed ‘Half Mast,’ a short documentary that focuses in on the issue of gun violence and mass shootings.
