newtown-movieThat’s what Esquire magazine said about Newtown, a new documentary about the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history on December 14, 2012. The film documents a traumatized community fractured by grief and driven toward a sense of purpose, and it weaves an intimate story of community resilience.“Why is this story important to tell? It is transforming in ways you can never anticipate, and there is an immediate human desire to protect the rest of the world from having to go through this.”  – David Wheeler, father of Ben Wheeler

Newtown is currently showing through October 20 at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas in New York City.
