EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PREVIEW of The Hunting Ground, followed by discussion with Producer Amy Ziering
Mitchell Hall
From the Sundance Film Festival site, where the film premiered in January: "The statistics are staggering. 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. From the intrepid team behind The Invisible War, comes The Hunting Ground, a piercing, monumental exposé of rape culture on campuses, poised to light a fire under a national debate." Stay after the film for a frank discussion with Producer Amy Ziering. Watch the trailer. Tickets are free, but required and will be available through UD Box Offices starting March 2nd. Sponsored by the Philosophy Department and the SAPE Committee.
