With this unflinching exposé, 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.
The two free screenings for The Hunting Ground are sponsored by Domestic Violence Action Center, Hawaii International Film Festival, Hawaii Women Lawyers, Hawai‘i Women in Film Making, Hawaii State Commission on the Status of Women, Joyful Heart Foundation, Planned Parenthood, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa Office of Gender Equity, University of Hawai‘i System and YWCA of O‘ahu.
