Newtown: Film and Community Discussion

Seated / All Ages

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.

Directly following the screening, we will have a community discussion led by Gregory Gibson.

Gregory is the author of the book Gone Boy about the shooting death of his son Galen that occurred at Simon's Rock College. Gregory has been active with Mom's Demand Action, and an outspoken advocate for gun reform. He lives in Gloucester, MA.
