Description

Fearless filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering follow up on their expose of sexual assault in the military, “The Invisible War,” by tackling the epidemic of sexual violence sweeping America’s campuses. Dick and Ziering drag the rape culture at American universities out from under the rug by cementing mind-boggling statistics (20 per-cent of college women are sexually assaulted) with the inspiring story of two UNC Chapel Hill student survivors-turned-activists who team up to start the organization End Rape on Campus. Andrea Pino and Annie Clark ingeniously employ a Title IX legal strategy to fight back against the institutional cover-ups, villainized victims, and skewed motivations that drive universities to turn a blind eye, and share their knowledge with a growing, unstoppable network of young women who will no longer be silent.
