Tina Tchen, Assistant to the President and Executive Director of the White House Council on Women and Girls hosted a special screening for White House staff, Senators Gillibrand and McCaskill, U.S. Representative Maloney, area students and community members last night of THE HUNTING GROUND – the widely anticipated new documentary from the Academy Award nominated team of Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering (THE INVISIBLE WAR).
The film – opening tomorrow – world premiered last month at the Sundance Film Festival to international acclaim taking an unflinching look at sexual assault on college campuses across the country.   Dick and Ziering were in attendance last night along with two of the subjects: Andrea Pino and Annie Clark.   
THE HUNTING GROUND takes audiences straight to the heart of a shocking epidemic of violence and institutional cover-ups sweeping college campuses across America. A startling exposé of sexual assaults on U.S. campuses, institutional cover-ups and the brutal social toll on victims and their families, THE HUNTING GROUND weaves together verité footage and first-person testimonies. Dick and Ziering follow survivors as they pursue their education while fighting for justice – despite harsh retaliation, harassment and pushback at every level.
RADiUS, which just won its second consecutive Academy Award for Best Documentary on Sunday night for CITIZENFOUR, will release THE HUNTING GROUND in New York and Los Angeles Friday, followed by a national rollout.

THE HUNTING GROUND opens in New York and LA on February 27,  

and in Washington, DC on March 13.
