THE HUNTING GROUND takes audiences straight to the heart of a shocking epidemic of violence and institutional cover—ups sweeping college campuses across America. The team behind the Oscar—nominated THE INVISIBLE WAR presents a scorching expose of the startling prevalence of sexual assault at US institutions of higher learning. In raw and emotional interviews, survivors and their families share real—life horror stories that have become all too common. Those brave enough to report the crimes face disbelief, apathy, victim-blaming, harassment and retaliation from both their fellow students and the administrators who are charged with protecting them.
THE HUNTING GROUND weaves in two courageous survivors who are shining a spotlight on the alarming trend of universities and colleges to downplay and deny sexual assaults on their campuses. As they strike back using an innovative legal strategy, they gain momentum to inspire justice in the process.
