  • Post-Screening Discussion with
  • Maria Cuomo Cole, Kim A. Snyder, Dr. William Begg III, and Abbey Clements

Senseless gun violence was at its most despicable on December 14, 2012 when 20 school children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut lost their lives to the deadliest mass shooting of school children in American history. This documentary has inspired renewed debate on gun control legislation and background-checks in the licensing of firearms. This is a movie that will change you. As IndieWire wrote, the film is “a breathtaking gut punch.” The issues that this film presents about a traumatized community are as timely now as they were then. Join us with filmmaker Maria Cuomo Cole, director/producer Kim A. Snyder, Dr. William Begg III, who was on ER duty during the tragedy, Abbey Clements, a teacher at Sandy Hook, and some of the parents that appear in the film for this important political and moral discussion.
