Director: Kirby Dick
From the team behind THE INVISIBLE WAR, comes a startling exposé of rape crimes on U.S. campuses, institutional cover-ups and the brutal social toll on victims and their families. Weaving together verité footage and first-person testimonies, the film follows survivors as they pursue their education while fighting for justice – despite harsh retaliation, harassment and pushback at every level.
When THE HUNTING GROUND is screened at The Athena Cinema in September, Ohio University will join the growing list of colleges and universities who want to join the ongoing effort to ignite change, ensure safety and demand justice on campuses across the country.

“Too few women (and men) have too little chance to share their stories. Dick’s film is a valuable spotlight.” -Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
“You can read all the statistics you want, but there’s no substitute for bearing witness – especially in such overwhelming numbers.” -Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
