Newtown Documentary (NR) 94 minutes

NEWTOWN - DOCUMENTARY (NR)--Three years after the horrific mass shooting in Newtown, CT on December 14, 2012. Bearing witness to their profound grief and allowing it to reverberate within our collective conscience – the film explores 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. Kim A. Snyder’s searing film documents a traumatized community fractured by grief and driven toward a sense of purpose. There are no easy answers, no words of compassion or reassurance that can bring back those who lost their lives. Instead, Snyder gives us exclusive access into the lives and homes of those who remain, all of whom have been indelibly changed by the events. 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.
