When filmmakers Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering visited colleges to screen their previous documentary – an exposé of sexual abuse in the U.S. military – students constantly shared their own accounts of rape on campus. It was a subject Dick and Ziering knew they had to tackle. Their latest documentary, The Hunting Ground, follows undergraduate rape survivors pursuing both their education and justice. Ziering joins us Wednesday to explore those stories and the culture of rape at America’s colleges.
On Wednesday, May 6, RadioWest and the Utah Film Center are screening The Hunting Ground at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City at 7 p.m. It's part of our Through the Lens film series. Doug Fabrizio will host a Q&A with director Kirby Dick and guests following the screening. The event is free and open to the public. DETAILS
Amy Ziering has produced several documentary films directed by Kirby Dick, including Outrage, The Invisible War and The Hunting Ground, which premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
