Nearly a year has passed since Omar Mateen opened fire in Orlando's Pulse nightclub on June 12, killing 49 people and wounding 53 others. Documentarian Charlie Minn has revisited that night, taking focus off the shooter and sitting down with the victims to hear their harrowing stories in a new film, One Pulse.

Minn's doc will heavily investigate the slow police response, considering it took law enforcement more than three hours to confront the scene. "I was told during my interviews that some victims bled to death because it took 192 minutes," Minn told Deadline. "Mass shooters may feel more confident doing these things if they think that police and law enforcement will back off."
In the official trailer, subjects reflect on the surreal experience, which took hours to unfold. One individual remembers people around him "dropping like flies," while another recalls the moment he realized Mateen wanted to "exterminate" everyone inside. "I absolutely thought I was going to die," says another.
One Pulse does not have an official release date, but it's scheduled to premiere in US theaters fall 2017.
