Tag: American Tragedy (2019)


DIRECTOR(S): Josh Sabey

GENRE: Documentary Film

SYNOPSIS: April 20, 1999 was a day that changed the world. Columbine High school was under attack by two of its own students: Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. In the aftermath of the tragedy, a survey showed that 85% of Americans blamed the parents of the shooters for what took place. It has taken Sue Klebold, Dylan’s mother, twenty years to reconcile how the son she thought she knew, the son she loved, could willingly and knowingly be a school shooter. What happens when we stop looking at these as rare, sensational events, and understand them as a particularly gruesome appendage to a much larger and more common problem? Sue finds insight among other survivors of unthinkable tragedies.
