On December 14, 2012, a disturbed young man committed a horrific mass shooting in Newtown, Connecticut that took the lives of twenty elementary school children and six educators. Filmed over the course of nearly three years, Newtown uses deeply personal, never-before-heard testimonies to tell the story of the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history. Through raw and heartbreaking interviews with parents, siblings, teachers, doctors, and first responders, Newtowndocuments a traumatized community still reeling from the senseless killing, fractured by grief but driven toward a sense of purpose. They speak candidly about their grief, anger, and disbelief over what occurred and their disappointment that nothing has truly changed in regards to the country’s legislative response to gun violence.

Following the screening there will be a discussion with the filmmaker Kim Snyder, professor John Donohue Stanford Law School, professor Dean Winslow Stanford School of Medicine, deputy Emerson Stewart Stanford Police Department and Kory Jamal Gaines, the Black Student Union’s Political Action Committee moderated by Jasmina Bojic, Camera as Witness director and founder of the international documentary film festival UNAFF
