BULLY
Friday 7:30 Saturday 2 & 4pm Sunday 3pm Monday 3pm

Directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, 'The Bully Project' is a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary. At its heart are those with huge stakes in this issue whose stories each represent a different facet of America's bullying crisis.

'The Bully Project' follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. Stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. 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, 'The Bully Project' 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.

Peter Travers of Rolling Stone said...
"The best social documents on film do more than show you what's wrong in the world – they make it personal. Bully does that with a passion."

Bully is also available for weekday screening for schools as well as private and public organizations. A minimum of 50 is required to book a screening. Please contact Peter Loewy at peter@forumtheatrearts.org for information and special rates.
