Here’s a link to the film review I did for The Miami Student about the documentary The Hunting Ground. And an excerpt:
Overwhelming anger accompanies a viewing of this film, but that outrage is a poor moral compass. It’s the catalyst for a movement, but not what carries it to the finish line.
Unfortunately, the film doesn’t deal with the messiness of that outrage when applied to policy actions, but, as a platform for survivors and the turmoil they have to endure, it still serves its role well.
Empathy is when we meet moral outrage before something egregious arrives on our own shores. “The Hunting Ground,” acts as a bridge to listen, understand and act.
