    • The Hunting Ground Web site: http://www.thehuntinggroundfilm.com/

From the team behind The Invisible War comes a startling exposé of sexual assault on U.S. campuses, institutional cover-ups and the brutal social toll on victims and their families. Weaving together verité footage and first-person testimonies, the film follows survivors as they pursue their education while fighting for justice -despite harsh retaliation, harassment and push back at every level. Trinity College, with the support of CONNSACS and other sponsors, will host two sneak previews of The Hunting Ground, two weeks before its theatrical release on March 20, 2015. The Invisible War brought sexual violence in the military to the nation's attention. The Hunting Ground will likely expand the current national dialogue on campus sexual violence. There will be a facilitated discussion following each showing.
