Trailer for 'Newtown' Documentary About a Town Trying to Recover
"I still keep expecting Dylan to be there. Am I just dreaming all of this?" Abramorama has debuted a trailer for the documentary Newtown, about the town in Connecticut that was devastated by a horrific mass shooting in 2012. The film examines how the town is coping with the tragedy, how they're coming together to heal and move forward, and how hard it has been yet life must go on. It's an impressive doc because of how much open access filmmaker Kim A. Snyder got with the victims, with the families that were affected. She spends time with them learning about how their lives are now, and how much they're still struggling but doing their best to remain hopeful. You will see just how remarkably moving and powerful this doc is below.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kim A. Snyder's documentary Newtown, direct from YouTube:
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 on December 14, 2012. Newtown is directed by American documentary filmmaker Kim A. Snyder, of a few docs including Crossing Midnight, Welcome to Shelbyville, and I Remember previously. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year and also played at SXSW, BAMcinemaFest, Montclair, Nantucket and Melbourne Film Festivals. Abramorama opens Newtown in select theaters starting October 7th, with a nationwide Fathom Events screening on November 2nd. Bring tissues - it's an emotional film.
