Bully Trailer, Bully Poster. Lee Hirsch‘s Bully (2011) movie trailer, movie poster is for a documentary written by Cynthia Lowen that showcases how “The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Safe and Drug-Free Schools estimates that 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. In the new documentary BULLY, award-winning filmmaker Lee Hirsch (AMANDLA! A REVOLUTION IN FOUR-PART HARMONY) brings human scale to this startling statistic, offering an intimate, unflinching look at how bullying has touched five kids and their families.
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.”
The Bully Movie Poster:
I’m glad this documentary film was made. This is an issue facing lots of children in schools, no matter what age they are, and the adults seem either oblivious or powerless to do anything about it. This documentary shows that there is hope and change is happening.
