"The Hunting Ground"
One in five college women is sexually assaulted, yet only a fraction of these crimes are reported, and even fewer result in punishment for the perpetrators.  In the new film "The Hunting Ground," Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering reveal the shocking epidemic violence and institutional cover-ups sweeping college campuses across America.  The film is a scorching exposé of the startling prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses and the powerful interests that re-victimize vulnerable students while shielding perpetrators.
