“The Hunting Ground” – A new film on campus sexual violence


the hunting ground posterThe Hunting Ground“, a film about sexual assault on national college campuses, premiered last weekend at the Sundance Film Festival. We look forward to watching this film that shares the voices of survivors, highlights the challenges for college administrations to effectively respond to sexual violence, and aims to advance solutions to prevent sexual violence. 

This film can serve as a catalyst to take action and promote solutions to address and prevent sexual violence. As California Senator Barbara Boxer said at related panel discussion about the film, “Believe me, there will be fallout.” CALCASA recently released a report that describes student recommendations to address sexual assault on college campuses.

“The Hunting Ground”, made by the same filmmakers as “The Invisible War” that brought national attention to sexual assault in the military, will be released in movie theaters on March 20 and will air on CNN in October.
