BULLY (2011)
Facilitated by Vickie Skorji and Mica Henderson

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 documentary film BULLY, directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, brings human scale to this startling statistic, offering an intimate look at how bullying has touched five kids and their families.

This film is highly relevant to Japan. In 2012 an anti-bullying task force was created and the Japan education ministry announced plans to conduct an emergency survey of all elementary, junior high and high schools in Japan next month in an attempt to draw up appropriate prevention measures for bullying and the terrible toll it takes including youth suicide. BULLY sparked a national social action campaign called the Bully Project to stop bullying that is transforming kids’ lives and changing a culture of bullying into one of empathy and action. Their goal is to reach 1 million kids or more, causing a tipping point that ends bullying in America. Japan deserves no less.
