Newtown Screening and Panel Discussion

Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 3:00pm
Ring Family Performing Arts Hall

FREE! Registration required

CPTV and Independent Lens present a free screening of “Newtown.”

“Newtown” uses deeply personal testimonies to tell the story of the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history. Through poignant interviews with parents, siblings, teachers, doctors, and first responders, “Newtown” documents a traumatized community still reeling from the senseless killing, fractured by grief but driven toward a sense of purpose.

Along with the filmmaker, local leaders and experts will participate in a post-screening moderated discussion focusing on community resilience and healing, and ways to address gun violence.

Speakers to include:

Marc Steiner, Host, The Marc Steiner Show
Kim A. Snyder, Filmmaker, Newtown
Rev Matt Crebbin, Senior Minister, Newtown Congregational Church
Pastor Sam Saylor, Vice President, National Gun Victims Action Council
Mark Barden, Founder and Managing Director, Sandy Hook Promise
