Living for 32

Living for 32 is the documentary film about Colin Goddard, a college student who was shot 4 times during the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre– and survived. Colin’s passion and optimism have commanded the attention of the American public and media ever since that horrific day which left 32 dead. After recovering and graduating from Tech, Colin volunteered for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Wearing a hidden camera and going undercover into gun shows all across America, he proved how easy it is for anyone to buy a gun, with no identification and no background check– just a wad of cash.  Living for 32 is his story.

Colin, now 28, will attend the screening and will join local gun violence experts in a panel discussion at the conclusion of the film. The film will be presented at the Belcourt Theatre on  Tuesday, Sep 24 at 7:30 PM.

Students must reserve their seats by using the Belcourt ticketing page at

For students who  also RSVP on the FLiCX event page at, and who commit to remaining for the post-screening discussion,  the  Dean of Students office will make the recommended $10 donation.

Both processes will involve some investment of time and effort by student who want to avail themselves of this opportunity, but the experience should be well worth the investment.
