Film Showing: The Hunting Ground
Location: University Classroom Building Room 100
Free and open to the UH community and the general public.
A Q&A forum will follow the film with: Dr. Sulma Gandhi (Student Health & Wellness Programs), Dr. Jennifer Stotter (EEO/ Title IX Office), Patrick Guillen (Athletics), Shelly Clark (Housing), Andrew Polloi (Counseling/Men of Strength), and Lorraine Davis (YWCA of Hawaii Island).
An unflinching expose, The Hunting Ground delivers a piercing, in-depth, journalistic look at sexual assault on college campuses. The film blends raw footage with first-person testimonies, following survivors and their families as they cope with retaliation, harassment, pushback and university efforts to downplay and deny assaults.
Filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering are known for their powerful chronicles of sexual assault. They recently helmed the Oscar-nominated The Invisible War, a searing investigation of rape within the U.S. military. That film won the Audience Award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, the 2012 Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary and the 2014 Emmy Award for Best Documentary and Outstanding Investigative Journalism.
Audiences are taken straight to the heart of a shocking epidemic of violence and institutional cover-ups sweeping across America. The team behind the Oscar-nominated The Invisible War present a scorching expose of the startling prevalence of sexual assault at bastions of higher learning and of the powerful interests that re-victimize vulnerable student while shielding perpetrators, The Hunting Ground delivers a devastating indictment of campus “rape culture.”
This event is sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, Student Health & Wellness Programs, Men of Strength and the Kipuka Native Hawaiian Student Center.
