KPFA Radio 94.1FM presents a startling documentary film and companion book
THE HUNTING GROUND:
The Inside Story of Sexual Assault on American College Campuses
Hosted by Joanna Manqueros
This explosive film, featured at the Sundance Film Festival, has been screened on more than a thousand college campuses. KPFA now presents the film with the companion book, which tells the story behind the film, taking a deeper look, offering brilliant essays by leading thinkers.
"The Hunting Ground, a documentary shocker about rape on college campuses, is a must-watch work of cine-activism." - Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Any parent sending a child off to college should consider this required viewing."
- New York Magazine
Amy Ziering is an Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker who works with Kirby Dick. She has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, The Daily Show and The Today Show. Their last documentary, The Invisible War, broke the story about the epidemic of rape in the military, spurring Congress and the Pentagon to institute long overdue reforms.
Their book contains exceptionally illuminating essays by Caitlin Flanagan, Roxane Gay, Andrew O'Hehir, D. Watkins, Wendy Levy, Kirby Dick and others, showing why the violence continues, what else can be done to stop it, and how students, faculty and alumni are at last standing up to their institutions to demand change.
"We must and we can change the culture, so that no abused woman or man...feels they ever have to ask themselves, "What did I do?" They did nothing wrong."
-Vice President Joe Biden, at the 2016 Academy Awards
Host Joanna Manqueros has been host of KPFA's Music of the World since 2005.
