Watch: Official Trailer for 'Bully' Doc, As Petition Heads to the MPAA
If you haven't heard, the documentary Bully has been in the news quite a bit, battling an R-rating from the MPAA (for "some language"), as it should be PG-13, so that kids all over can see it and be educated by it as well. We have yet to feature the trailer, but Apple released the high def version of Lee Hirsch's Bully, and it comes at a perfect time as a petition with over 200,000 signatures is about to be hand delivered (26K pages) to the MPAA. The Wrap reports that Katy Butler, a 17-year-old girl from Michigan, is coming to LA to present her petition on Wednesday. Let's hope it makes a difference, as this looks like an extraordinary film.
Watch the official theatrical trailer for Lee Hirsch's The Bully Project, in high def from Apple:
Directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker Lee Hirsch ("NextWorld"), The Bully Project, now just known as Bully, follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. 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, Bully 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.
