Using vérité footage, expert insights, first-person testimonies and a bombshell interview sure to make headlines, "The Hunting Ground" delivers a devastating indictment of campus “rape culture.”
A panel discussion/audience Q&A will take place after the screening. Panel guests include Kristen Bowes, general counsel, Mercy College; Rebecca Dince Zipkin, Sanctuary for Families and victims' rights advocate Lisa C. Smith, professor, Brooklyn Law School & New York State Violence against Women DCJS Task Force appointee.
