Audrie & Daisy Doc Trailer

"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, direct from YouTube:

Audrie & Daisy Poster

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 on September 23rd this year.

Jocks do get rapey, but folk don't seem to mind that at all.

If you play a sport can get away with practically anything.

Similar with musicians, look at R Kelly. Oh also forgot about that mental South African Blade Runner asshole.

Carpola on Aug 22, 2016


I know how to solve that problem... lets all get fat!

Maybe there should be better education, that creates less creepy rapey sportsmen?

Entering the internet is like entering an arena. It would be foolish not to expect to be stabbed by a spear or crushed by a hammer. Parents who let their kids on the internet without any control or restriction are really immature or irresponsible. Or maybe both.

Internet is public arena where come a lot of people who don't understand what public and responsibility means. For kids, that can be extreme ...

Agreed. And there is a special place in hell for those who falsely accuse men or women of these crimes. It is a modern day "scarlet letter".

I can see your point and agree it is unfair for many victims to feel like they are being put on trial for being the victim. But I think it is also way too easy for people to feel like they are being attacked nowadays. People cannot even complement coworkers on looking nice for fear of being accused of sexual misconduct. At the University level, students are urged to sign a form of consent before having sex. I am not saying there is not a problem sexual abuse and rape culture in this country, clearly there is, but wrapping it up in so much red tape and subterfuge is not helping. I think we can both agree that real sexual attackers are disgusting, bottom feeding, cretins that don't deserve to breathe the same air as we do. That said, I think we have fostered a culture that just serves to make life harder than it needs to be by empowering accusers with practically, unchecked power.

No winners here.

SMH. Bullying and rape has always existed, now it's just publicized and streamed everywhere thanks to modern media. As a father of a daughter, vengeance would be on my mind if she were in similar circumstances. Sad times indeed.

Why not tell the truth about Audrie who was erased from her biological father in California?
