December 14, 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. This is the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history. “Newtown” is a documentary filmed over the course of three years by award-winning filmmaker Kim A. Snyder, to show the aftermath of such a massive attack. The film explores what happens to a community after it becomes the center of a national discussion, and what is still left to cope with after the cameras leave. Snyder uses never before heard testimonies to tell the story of the Sandy Hook community traumatized with grief and driven toward a sense of purpose. Joining the ranks of a growing club to which no one wants to belong, a cast of characters interconnects to weave an intimate story of community resilience.

SUNY New Paltz will be doing a screening of the documentary on Tuesday, March 7 at 6:30pm in Lecture Center room 102. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Lisa Phillips, associate professor of journalism and a native of Newtown. Due to the difficult subject matter SUNY New Paltz will have a quiet room set up with members of their Counseling Center for attendees to use throughout the screening and the panel discussion.
