Screening: The Hunting Ground
Sep 28 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Women Occupy San Diego offers a free film screening every month at the museum. This month’s film is Acadmey Award nominated documentary “The Hunting Ground”.

The statistics are staggering. One in five women in college are sexually assaulted, yet only a fraction of these crimes are reported, and even fewer result in punishment for the perpetrators. From the intrepid team behind The Invisible War comes The Hunting Ground, a piercing, monumental exposé of rape culture on campuses, poised to light a fire under a national debate.

In a tour de force of verité footage, expert insights, and first-person testimonies, the film follows undergraduate rape survivors pursuing both their education and justice, despite ongoing harassment and the devastating toll on them and their families.
