IN PERSON: Tara Sanders, Exhale to Inhale’s program director for Upstate New York.

A documentary exposé about the huge yet hidden problem of sexual assault on college campuses nationwide. 
From the team behind THE INVISIBLE WAR, a vital and frank investigation of sexual assault in the U.S. military, comes another startling exposé – about rape 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 pushback at every level. (C) Radius-TWCi.

 A must-watch work of cine-activism, one that should be seen by anyone headed to college and by those already on campus. – Manhola Dargis, NY Times
