Now, a trailer for a short documentary set to hit Netflix next week, Lessons From A School Shooting: Notes From Dunblane, which focusses upon two Fathers from opposing sides of the Atlantic who form a bond through letters they send to one another. The documentary is only 22 minutes long and will arrive on the streamer later this month.
Kim A. Snyder directs.
Here’s the official synopsis.
Following the critically acclaimed ‘Newtown’ documentary, Lessons From A School Shooting: Notes from Dunblane depicts Father Bob Weiss, who in the days following the Sandy Hook Massacre that took the lives of 20 children and 6 of their educators teachers on December 14, 2012, was tasked with the burial of 8 of those children. In the throes of profound PTSD, he receives a letter from Father Basil O’Sullivan in Dunblane, Scotland where in 1996 16 school children were gunned down at the hands of an unhinged lone gunman. In the ensuing months, the two priests forge a bond across the Atlantic through a series of letters sharing experiences of trauma and recovery. Father Basil recalls his own town’s efforts to launch the “Snowdrop” campaign that brought about radical gun policy reform in the UK, whereas the US has had no federal reform to date.
Lessons From A School Shooting: Notes From Dunblane will be available on Netflix from September 28th. Here’s the new trailer.
