Audrie & Daisy 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. 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.
While sexual violence is not a new problem, social media clearly amplifies the repercussions of it. Allowing the time and space for middle and high school students to engage in difficult and courageous conversations around a topic that is in the news—sexual assault and what occurs in its wake on social media—can be a first step toward creating safe schools and respectful relationships among students on- and off-campus and on- and offline.
