This extraordinary documentary, shortlisted for the 2015 Oscars, tackles sexual assault on college campuses, institutional cover-ups, and the rise of a new student movement. Weaving together verité footage and first-person testimonies, The Hunting Ground follows survivors as they pursue their education while fighting for justice--despite harsh retaliation, endless harassment and pushback at every level. The Hunting Ground is directed and written by Kirby Dick, the Academy award-nominated director of Sick, and produced by Amy Ziering. It features the original song "Til It Happens to You" written by Diane Warren and Lady Gaga, performed by Lady Gaga. Watch trailer.

The Hunting Ground (USA, 2015, 103 minutes) is not yet rated.
