A Message To People Who Think Sandy Hook Is A Hoax by NEWTOWN Filmmakers Maria Cuomo and Kim A. Snyder
A Message To People Who Think Sandy Hook Is A Hoax by NEWTOWN Filmmakers Maria Cuomo & Kim A. Snyder via FilmCourage.com.
Kim A. Snyder’s powerful documentary NEWTOWN, produced by Maria Cuomo Cole. Filmed over the course of nearly three years, the film uses unique access and never-before heard testimonies to tell a story of the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history.
NEWTOWN opens in NY Oct. 7 and in LA and the OC on Oct. 14 — After a Season of Influencing the National Dialogue on Gun Violence Partners with Fathom Events in Unprecedented 496+ Location National Event Screening on November 2 followed by Special Live Town Hall, moderated by CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
There are no easy answers in NEWTOWN — no words of compassion or reassurance that can bring back the 20 children and six educators who lost their lives during the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Instead, Snyder gives us exclusive access into the lives and homes of those who lost loved ones, and others in the community who have been indelibly changed by the events. Each person, be it a parent, school nurse, or state police officer, tries in their own way to make sense of their loss, as well as confront our nation’s inability to quell gun violence in even the most peaceful of communities. NEWTOWN bears witness to their profound grief and allows it to reverberate within our collective conscience — exploring what happens to a community after it becomes the epicenter of a national discussion, and what is still left to cope with after the cameras leave.
