This year, the Film Festival will feature the documentary “BULLY” by Lee Hirsch. Over 13 million American kids will be bullied this year, making it the most common form of violence experienced by young people in the nation.
The new documentary film BULLY, directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, brings human scale to this startling statistic, offering an intimate, unflinching look at how bullying has touched five kids and their families.
