5/3/12: Through the Lens - Bully

Salt Lake City, Utah –

Thursday, we're joined by Lee Hirsch, director of the troubling and powerful film "Bully." It's the latest in our Through the Lens documentary series. Hirsch has said he wanted to bring the hidden lives of young people who are bullied out in the open. He spent a year following five families - including two trying to find some resolution after their sons took their own lives. We'll talk to Hirsch about the film and present free screenings at 4:35 and 7:10 at the Broadway Centre Cinemas."Bully" Events:

  • All of the tickets for tonight's screening have been given. However there will be an opportunity to join a wait-list for last minute seats. Thank you everyone for such a tremendous response!!
