Social Justice Film: Newtown

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Social Justice Movie for March will be Newtown, named for the small Connecticut town that had to learn how to cope in the wake of the tragic mass killing in 2012 of 20 children and 6 staff at the hands of a disturbed young gunman.
Newtown is an intimate portrait of a town in grief and recovery. We come to know families, immersed in a surreal fog of despair, perseverance and unthinkable strength, managing to carry on every day. Together, their intimate stories, along with those of teachers, neighbors, first responders and clergy, reveal reverberating rings of grief, compassion, survivor guilt and the profound desire to create meaningful change out of a tragedy that will mark their town for generations to come.
