USA | 85 min | NR | DCP | Dir. Kim A. Snyder Filmed over the course of nearly three years, the filmmakers use unique access and never before heard testimonies to tell a story of the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history on December 14, 2012. Newtown documents a traumatized community fractured by 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 interconnect to weave an intimate story of community resilience. (Official Site) “A breathtaking gut punch. This film is an important historical record, and an important reminder of an event in American history that could have changed everything, that should have changed everything. Newtown is a crucial reminder of that.” - Katie Walsh (Indiewire) This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
