The Hunting Ground - Movie Synopsis & Plot
From the team behind THE INVISIBLE WAR, comes a startling exposé of rape crimes on U.S. campuses, institutional cover-ups and the brutal social toll on victims and their families. Weaving together verité footage and first-person testimonies, the film follows survivors as they pursue their education while fighting for justice — despite harsh retaliation, harassment and pushback at every level.
Arguably the most powerful documentary you’ll see all year, The Hunting Ground
is the controversial exposé on rape at college campuses. Hitting on the same points raised in Jon Krakauer’s Missoula
--most notably, that a large percent of college rapes are committed by a small percent of men (read: repeat offenders)--The Hunting Ground
is a disturbing examination of how and why nearly one in five women on college campuses experience sexual assault, and the reasons universities rarely pursue or punish the accused. Read our Hunting Ground, The movie review »
