SIFF description: The Hunting Ground takes audiences straight to the heart of a shocking epidemic of violence and institutional cover-ups sweeping college campuses across America through a scorching exposé of the prevalence of sexual assault at bastions of higher learning – and of the powerful interests that re-victimize vulnerable students while shielding perpetrators.

Weaving together verité footage and first-person testimonies to tell the real-life horror stories that have become all too common, the film also uncovers an alarming effort on the part of universities and colleges to downplay and deny sexual assaults on their campuses to keep crime statistics low and public approval high.

The film also highlights two courageous survivors turned activists, Andrea Pino and Annie Clark, who are striking back with an innovative legal strategy that has ignited a national debate over campus assaults, and have created a meaningful support network for young women who refuse to remain silent.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
