Film Screening: Newtown

Date: 
29. Jan 19:00 - 21:00

Join us for a screening of the documentary "Newtown" for a look at how the community of Newtown, Connecticut came together in the aftermath of the largest mass shooting of schoolchildren in American history.

"Twenty months after a horrific mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., that took the lives of 20 elementary school children and six educators on Dec. 14, 2012, the small New England town is in a complex psychological tangle in the wake of yet another act of mass killing at the hands of a disturbed young gunman. The film provides access into the lives and homes of those who remain, all of whom have been indelibly changed by the events."

The event is free for all to attend. (Room 2.516 in GWZ)
American Space Leipzig provides pizza, snacks & drinks (while supplies last).
