Bully

Directed by Lee Hirsch

Saturday, March 24th,      11:00am

San Francisco Film      Society Cinema

1746 Post Street (near Webster)

A discussion will follow the screening about the      film

and the issues it addresses

Over      13 million American kids will be bullied this year, making it the most      common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation. The      new documentary film BULLY, directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning      filmmaker Lee Hirsch, brings human scale to this startling statistic,      offering an intimate, unflinching look at how bullying has touched five      kids and their families.

BULLY      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. Filmed over the course of the 2009/2010 school year,      BULLY opens a window onto the pained and often endangered lives of bullied      kids, revealing a problem that transcends geographic, racial, ethnic and      economic borders. It documents the responses of teachers and      administrators to aggressive behaviors that defy “kids will be      kids” clichés, and it captures a growing movement among parents and      youths to change how bullying is handled in schools, in communities and      in society as a whole.
