About this event

“Newtown” – This documentary 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.

Presented by NET, the free film screenings of Independent Lens documentaries combined with speakers and open discussion confront real-life issues while bringing people together for community-driven conversation around films from the award-winning PBS series.
