We Rise Above: The Hunting Ground

Thu, Jun 4 / 7 pm
Fri, Jun 5 / 9 pm
Sat, Jun 6 / 3 pm
Directed by Kirby Dick
2015, USA, 90 min

Documentarian Kirby Dick, who took on rape in the U.S. military in 2012’s acclaimed The Invisible War, turns to the epidemic of sexual assault on American college campuses—and the thornier issue of how and why schools don’t prosecute or even pursue the vast majority of reported cases. The emotional pull of the personal stories here is undeniable, but the hard data is equally damning: brick by brick, this film carefully and methodically builds the case that an integral part of our higher-education system isn’t just blemished but broken.

Presented in partnership with the Canadian Museum for Human  Rights
