The Hunting Ground

After exposing sexual assault in the United States military at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, the team behind The Invisible War is back at the festival again, but this time they're exposing the rape crimes that are being covered up and overlooked on college campuses across the United States. The Hunting Ground is directed by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering and reveals "an endemic system of institutional cover-ups, rationalizations, victim-blaming, and denial that creates perfect storm conditions for predators to prey with impunity." It's premiering at Sundance this month, and the first provocative trailer has just arrived. Watch!

Here's the trailer for Kirby Dick & Amy Ziering's The Hunting Ground from Radius-TWC:

The Hunting Ground

The Hunting Ground is directed by Kirby Dick & Amy Ziering (The Invisible War). One in five women in college are sexually assaulted, yet only a fraction of these crimes are reported, and even fewer result in punishment for the perpetrators. This documentary puts forth a startling exposé of rape crimes on U.S. campuses, institutional cover-ups and the brutal social toll on victims and their families. Weaving together verité footage and first-person testimonies, the film follows survivors as they pursue their education while fighting for justice — despite harsh retaliation, harassment and pushback at every level. The film premieres at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival this month and Radius-TWC sends it to theaters on March 20th.

    How credible can the documentary be if it uses the 1 in 5 stat on its poster?

      Most documentaries have their agenda in order before they start the project so everything gets filtered through that lens. I wish more people understood that before they started using documentaries as sources.
