Newtown uses deeply personal testimonies to tell the story of the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history. Through poignant interviews with parents, siblings, teachers, doctors, and first responders, Newtown documents a traumatized community still reeling from the senseless killing, fractured by grief but driven toward a sense of purpose.

*Anticipated Availability: February 27 - April 2, 2017 for the 2016 - 2017 Indie Lens Pop Up season.

Please contact Jenn Baumstein, jbaumstein@wmht.org to set up a screening.
