Directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, The Bully Project 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. The Bully Project follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. Stories include two families who have lost children to suicide, and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun onto her school bus. With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias, and principals' offices, the film offers insight into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children.
