Critically-Acclaimed Documentary “Newtown” Screening and Town Hall Discussion
Various dates and locations
Newtown, the critically-acclaimed documentary telling the intimate story of community grief and resilience in the three years following the unimaginable tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary, opens nationwide Nov. 2 with a screening and Town Hall discussion moderated by CNN’s Chris Cuomo and featuring families from the community engaging in a dialogue about gun violence, collective trauma, and community response. The screenings will begin at 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT and tape delayed in MT, and PT to 7:30 p.m. local time.
The film gives a realistic view into the effects of this tragedy on the citizens of Newtown and never-before-heard testimonies from educators, parents of victims, law enforcement, clergy and members of the larger community to tell their stories.
With this event, filmmaker Maria Cuomo Cole and director Kim Snyder hope to reach beyond failed political discourse and encourage national civic dialogue regarding an issue that is of highest stakes for us all.
