A powerful new documentary looks at the aftermath of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. It was filmed over the course of nearly three years and includes never-before-heard testimonies from parents, survivors, and first responders. "Newtown" is raw and challenging and heartbreaking. You can see it tonight on Independent Lens on SDPB TV. We welcome the film's director and producer Kim Snyder.
