Directed by Sundance and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Lee Hirsch, BULLY is a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary—at its heart are those with the most at stake and whose stories each represent a different facet of the bullying crisis. Like the phenomenon of bullying itself, the film is direct and hard-hitting, as it follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias, and principals' offices, the film BULLY offers insight into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children, as teachers, administrators, and parents struggle to find answers. While the stories examine the dire consequences of bullying, they also give testimony to the courage and strength of the victims of bullying and seek to inspire real changes in the way we deal with bullying as parents, teachers, children, and in society as a whole. Through the power of these stories, BULLY aims to be a catalyst for change and to turn the tide on an epidemic of violence that has touched every community in the United States—and far beyond.
 
Bullying today does not happen just at school. It happens on the streets of our towns, in our homes, at extracurricular activities, at camp, online, and in many other places. In order to accomplish real change kids, parents, school staff, community leaders, and legislators must all come together to help find solutions. The filmmakers of BULLY created The Bully Project to help students, parents, educators, and communities nationwide take a stand against bullying and create schools and communities where everyone feels welcome. The website of The Bully Project Social Action Campaign is www.thebullyproject.com, where a suite of tools and resources that will help make lasting change in our schools and communities can be found.
