BEYOND BOUNDARIES: DARE TO BE DIVERSE
Screening & DIscussion Series presents:
AUDRIE & DAISY, 2016
Directed by Bonni Cohen & Jon Shenk
"Audrie & Daisy" indicts a culture where sexual assault is rife, and where its perpetrators all too often escape any legal or other punitive consequences." - Variety
There will be a discussion after the screening with Professor Andrea Nikischer, Assistant Professor of Adult Education, and others TBA.
AUDRIE & DAISY is based on real life stories of two girls in high school who were assaulted by boys they knew. It is an urgent real-life drama that examines the ripple effects on families, friends, schools and communities when two underage young women find that sexual assault crimes against them have been caught on camera and spread online. From acclaimed filmmakers Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk (The Island President, The Rape of Europa), AUDRIE & DAISY — which made its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival — takes a hard look at American’s teenagers who are coming of age in this new world of social media bullying, spun wildly out of control.
Beyond Boundaries is curated by Jason Parker and Professors Ruth Goldman, Meg Knowles, and Michael Niman and and is sponsored by:
Buffalo State’s Equity and Campus Diversity Office, Women & Gender Studies, Communication Department, and Burchfield Penney Art Center
Beyond Boundaries screenings are free and open to the public.
