The Hunting Ground is a moving new documentary from the Oscar-nominated filmmakers behind The Invisible War.
Their new film explores the problem of sexual assault on college campuses, and the broad failure of university administrators to protect victims and hold assailants accountable for their actions. As much as The Hunting Ground is about failures of our society and institutions, it is also an illuminating profile of the college activists who, by working together, transformed themselves from rape survivors to advocates demanding reform.
The incredible young women and men featured in The Hunting Ground successfully sparked a long-overdue conversation what college administrators can and should be doing to prevent and properly adjudicate sexual assault.
We encourage you to participate in this conversation; to that end, we assembled a viewing guide. Tune in to CNN tonight at 8pm EST to watch The Hunting Ground and download the viewing guide here.
If you are moved by the film and would like to become more involved in the issue, we encourage you to contact us about hosting a viewing event.
WLP Executive Director Carol Tracy, who makes a brief appearance in the film, is a national expert in institutional response to sexual assault. To request for information or schedule an interview, contact Tara Murtha at firstname.lastname@example.org.
