Filmed over the course of nearly three years, the filmmakers use unique access and never before heard testimonies to tell a story of the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history.
Newtown documents a traumatized community fractured by grief and driven toward a sense of purpose. Joining the ranks of a growing club to which no one wants to belong, a cast of characters interconnect to weave an intimate story of community resilience.

Press

  • “It’s a shocking and compelling piece of work”
    THE GUARDIAN
  • “Snyder crafts a composite portrait that’s intimate but also humbled and respectful”
    THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
  • “Elegantly and devastatingly captures the tenor of a town that will carry these scars for a generation”
    VARIETY
  • "Proves with its understated controlled filmmaking, that Snyder could be one of our best documentarians.”
    INDIEWIRE
  • "The film is an important historical record, and an important reminder of an event in American history that could have changed everything, that should have changed everything. There’s no reason why it still can’t. “Newtown” is a crucial reminder of that."
    PLAYLIST
  • “Newtown is an act of memorialization, a demand that this most distractible if countries look close and continue to care.”
    VILLAGE VOICE
  • “Through Snyder’s lens, you see a town realizing it has a chance to be the one that finally says “enough is enough.”
    GQ MAGAZINE
  • "Viewers are given wrenching access to a place that more than three years later continues to grapple with an attack that claimed the lives of 26 victims, many of them small children."
    THE LOS ANGELES TIMES
