Last week’s deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida was followed by scenes we have seen all too often. In 2013, a similar scene played out at Decatur’s Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy. Thankfully, no one was killed. A short film called "DeKalb Elementary" is based on that incident is nominated for an Academy Award. We talked with the film’s writer and director, Reed Van Dyk.
