NewtownAbout the Film
On December 14, 2012, the small town of Newtown, Connecticut was forever changed when 20 small children and six educators were fatally shot at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Newtown is a devastatingly candid reckoning with an event that should never have happened, yet sadly recurs across the nation far too often. Constraining her scope to the microcosm of a community—and several families—trying to find a way forward, Kim A. Snyder avoids sensationalism and polemics and instead honors the lasting impact of the tragedy of Sandy Hook and remembers those who were lost.
Kim A. Snyder and Maria Cuomo Cole in attendance.
Saturday's screening will include an extended conversation with the filmmakers and a special guest from the film.
