“Bully” -Facing History and Ourselves

Lee Hirsch’s “Bully”,, a character driven documentary, examines the disastrous consequences of bullying  through the testimony of five students and their families. Through the power of their stories, it is the intent of the film to make more of us aware of the challenges our young people face when being bullied.

Facing History and Ourselves, a highly respected educational and professional development organization, whose mission is to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice and anti-semitism in order to promote  the development of a more informed and humane citizenry, is proud to present a special showing of this startling film on Wednesday, March 7th at 5:30 p.m. at The AMC River East screen prior to its opening on March 9th. This is a FREE event and will also feature a “Community Conversation” with Award winning filmmaker Hirsch.
