After an outpouring of requests, the film makers of the Academy Award nominated film-making team of “The Invisible War” – sexual assault in the military – have produced another documentary, “The Hunting Ground” – sexual assault on our campuses.
“The Hunting Ground” is a startling expose of rape crimes on US campuses, their institutional cover-ups, and the devastating toll they take on students and their families. Weaving together verite footage and first person testimonies, the film follows the lives of several undergraduate assault survivors as they attempt to pursue – despite incredible push back, harassment and traumatic aftermath – both their education and justice. Please take a moment to view the following trailer then continue reading our message below it.
We at Guided To Safety believe this documentary shares a very important message for college bound students, those currently attending college, their families and their communities, as even one case of sexual assault devastates not only the individual and their family, but the communities they live and attend school in. Guided To Safety is considering organizing a screening in Petaluma which would run $900 – $1,000 (licensing fee and fee for rental of screening facility). However, we need your input.
Does this topic move you? Are you inspired to view this documentary? Might you be a business interested in cosponsoring the screening or know of a business who may be interested in cosponsoring? Your feedback is important to us! You may comment on our FB page, on our website or via email at GuidedToSafety@gmail.com
