Join us Tuesday, March 14, for a free Indie Lens Pop-Up screening of Newtown, a powerful documentary that explores the aftermath and resilience of a community devastated by trauma. The event takes place in the Nashville Downtown Public Library auditorium (615 Church St., 37219) and begins with a reception at 5:30 p.m. The screening begins at 6 p.m. and will be followed by a discussion with panelists Keith King, community relations manager, Alive Hospice; and Beth Joslin Roth, executive director of Safe Tennessee Project. NPT’s LaTonya Turner will serve as moderator.
Newtown is Kim A. Snyder’s film about the aftermath of the December 2012 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 community still reeling from the senseless killing, fractured by grief but driven toward a sense of purpose.
