Synopsis: 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
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.
