Newtown

Snyder, Kim
Genre: 
Three years after the horrific mass shooting in Newtown, CT that took the lives of twenty elementary school children and six educators on December 14, 2012, the small New England town is a complex psychological web in the wake of yet another act of mass killing at the hands of a disturbed young gunman. Kim A. Snyder’s searing NEWTOWN documents a traumatized community fractured by grief and driven toward a sense of purpose.. Each person, be it a parent, school nurse, or state police officer, tries in their own way to make sense of their loss. NEWTOWN bears witness to their profound grief and allows it to reverberate within our collective conscience - exploring what happens to a community after it becomes the epicenter of a national discussion, and what is still left to cope with after the cameras leave.. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival. Nominated for the SXSW Gamechanger Award at the SXSW Film Festival.. "This film isn’t content to be merely a “never forget” reminder; it wants to convey just how deep and lasting the pain is, from this attack and, by extension, many others." - Neil Genzlinger, The New York Times
