Doco helmer Kim A. Snyder's (I Remember Me) Newtown examines a town still in mourning several years after the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.

"Filmed over the course of nearly three years, the film-makers 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." (SXSW Film Festival)

Snyder uses her camera as a friendly ear and as an eye to bear witness. Gun control and gun rights are clearly in the mix but the truth about what happened and why it happened are the mystery her film scrutinizes.

12-14-12, like 9/11, is a monumental date. Snyder revisits it on an intimate scale.

"Aftermath," that tossed-around cliché, comes into tender, harrowing focus. ... A crucial, profound strength of Newtown is its refusal to rush toward "closure" as necessary, or even to suggest that it's possible.

I doubt these parents could ever forget these children, but we must never forget what happened in Newtown on December 14, 2012. This film is a searing reminder.
