Directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker, Lee Hirsch, BULLY explores stories that represent a different facet of America’s bullying crisis. The filmmakers follow five kids and families over the course of a school year. Stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals’ offices, the film offers insight into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children.
Complete with a juggler, a mechanical doll who comes alive, spirited horses, frolicsome dogs, and a capybara and porcupine to perk up the sawdust party, families will enjoy a new season of acrobatics, comedy and magic. A singing Ringmistress and the Big Apple Circus Band share ringing melodies and Grandma, apogee of comical aspiration and mirthful joy, is back.
