The Hunting Grounds documentary (103 minutes) http://www.thehuntinggroundfilm.com/ exposes sexual violence as a prevalent problem on campuses of higher education across the United States. The filmmakers, Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, interviewed more than 100 students in making the film: of these, 60 were interviewed on camera. Their stories frame the film’s narrative as they recount the trauma they endured. Having experienced the failure of their institutions to protect them, the survivors portrayed in the film take action in order to break the silence about rape on college campuses and to force their universities to hold perpetrators accountable and to put services in place to support survivors.
Weaving together a verite footage and first-person testimonies, the film foregreounds the efforts of survivors as they attempt to pursue—despite incredible pushback, harassment and traumatic aftermath—both their education and justice. After the screening, there will be a panel discussion from various administrators, faculty, staff and students to discuss about CSUSM policies and resources.
