Film Synopsis
From the filmmakers of The Invisible War (2012) comes a startling expose of rape crimes on U.S. campuses, their institutional cover-ups, and the tragic social consequences. Weaving together vérité footage and first-person testimonials, the film follows survivors as they pursue their education and legal justice, despite harsh retaliation, harassment, and pushback.
(Duration of film: 1h 43mins)

Following the film screening, we will hold a Zoom discussion session. We will assign attendees into different breakout rooms for discussion (30mins), before gathering back into the main room. A cluster member will be around to facilitate the discussion in each breakout room.

This film contains narratives that some viewers may find disturbing. If you feel that you may be triggered or traumatized by hearing individuals speak about their experiences of sexual violence, you are advised not to attend this screening.
