First Trailer for Sexual Assault & Online Bullying Doc 'Audrie & Daisy'
"Shame is trending." Netflix has debuted the trailer for a documentary titled Audrie & Daisy, which first premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival. The doc examines the lives of two different women, Audrie Pott and Daisy Coleman, who never met each other but were brought together by tragic circumstances. Both teens were sexually assaulted while intoxicated, and subsequently bullied online by their classmates, which resulted in one suicide. The doc examines the rape culture in America and shaming which is, sadly, fueled by the internet. I saw the doc at Sundance and I'm not a fan of it, but it does discuss a very important topic.
Here's the official trailer for Bonni Cohen & Jon Shenk's doc Audrie & Daisy, from Netflix's YouTube:
Two different girls sexually assaulted on two different nights, in two different towns. Audrie & Daisy takes a hard look at the issues faced by America's teenagers who are coming of age in the new world of social media bullying, spun wildly out of control. Audrie & Daisy is co-directed by filmmakers Bonni Cohen ("National Geographic Explorer") & Jon Shenk (Lost Boys of Sudan, The Island President). The film first premiered in-competition at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Netflix will release Audrie & Daisy in select theaters + streaming online starting September 23rd this year.
