“Hunting Ground” Postponed Until Fall
OUUF has postponed the documentary film, “The Hunting Ground.” Originally scheduled for July 29, it will be shown Sept. 30. The film will be a Fifth Sunday Forum and open to the public regardless of religious affiliation. It will follow the regular service and start at about 12:30 p.m.
Jim Casey, OUUF outreach manager, said the postponement will make it easier to advertise the film to college students and high school seniors who now on summer vacation.
“The Hunting Ground” follows two female students — both sexual assault survivors — as they fight for justice and reconciliation for victims on all campuses. People who have viewed it say it transfers the shame of assault from the survivor to the perpetrator.
They call it must-see for college students, students preparing for college, and their parents. One of its findings: More than 100,000 students, male and female, endure some form of sexual molestation each year.
Admission is free, but the fellowship will accept donations to defray the cost of the film. It was produced by the nonprofit Peace Is Loud organization that promotes action through films and speakers that spotlight women leaders in promoting peace worldwide.
