How many school fights can you brush off , pretending it’s just kids fooling around? Over 13 million American kids a year are bullied at school, online, on the bus, at home, through their cell phones and on the streets of their towns, making it the most common form of violence young people experience. These faceless statistics take on human form thanks to Lee Hirsch’s award-winning documentary “Bully”. Five kids and their families are faced with various degrees of harassment, main characters in a global movement towards acknowledging a new type of social plague.
