Charity screenings of 'Bully' for headspace
Bully profiles five young Americans and their families
who have been affected by bullying. Each story represents a
different side of the bullying epidemic and captures a growing
movement among parents and young people to change how bullying is
addressed in schools and in communities.
Sundance and Emmy Award winning filmmaker Lee Hirsch documents
the responses of teachers and administrators to aggressive
behaviours that defy "kids will be kids" clichés, and captures a
growing movement among parents and youths to change how bullying is
handled in schools, in communities and in society as a whole.
headspace hopes the film will open people's
eyes to the serious and destructive nature of bullying and how wide
spread the impact can be as well as encouraging individuals to get
help for issues with bullying before things get out of hand.
All charity screenings of Bully have now taken place
and there are no more tickets on sale.
headspace would like to thank Dendy Cinemas (Newtown),
Palace Cinemas (Brisbane), Luna on SX (Fremantle) and Cinema Nova
(Melbourne) for their generous support as well as everyone who
attended the screenings and supported our work by purchasing
Bully goes on general release in selected cinemas
across Australia on August 23rd.
