The film Bully premieres on March 30, 2012 in New York and Los Angeles, but on April 13, Schools for Children and NISCE will host the inaugural Boston-area screening of the film at the Landmark Kendall Cinema in Cambridge. Immediately following the show, Dr. Richard Weissbourd, Harvard lecturer, will provide commentary and lead a short discussion with the audience.

The documentary, which follows five students who are bullied over the course of one year, seeks to expose the tragic effects of bullying. By giving intimate glimpses into school buses, classrooms, cafeterias, and principals’ offices, viewers are offered insights into the often-cruel world of children. Following in the footsteps of the film’s – STOP BULLYING. SPEAK UP – call to action, the National Institute for Student-Centered Education (NISCE) looks to catalyze audiences of teachers, students, administrators and parents to join together in the ongoing struggle to find effective answers.

By joining us on the 13th, you will be taking an important next step in finding solutions which both address immediate needs and lead to broader, systemic change.

Tickets go on sale on Monday, March 26, 2012 and we expect to sell out quickly. Purchase tickets via Eventbrite. Proceeds from this screening will go towards Schools for Children and the National Institute for Student-Centered Education’s efforts to end bullying.
