Also known as The Bully Project, the beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary is directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch. It is about America’s bullying crisis which follows five kids and families over the course of a school year.
Stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals’ offices, the film offers insight into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children.
As teachers, administrators, kids and parents struggle to find answers, the film examines the dire consequences of bullying through the testimony of strong and courageous youth. Through the power of their stories, the film aims to be a catalyst for change in the way we deal with bullying as parents, teachers, children and society as a whole.
