FREE showing of “Bully”, Savannah

BULLY movie Savannah showtimes 2019

On Tues. Feb. 12 @ 6PM, Georgia Southern University College of Education (COE) will host a FREE screening of “Bully,” a film documenting the effects of bullying on school-aged students and their families. The screening, which is free and open to the public, will begin @ 6PM in University Hall, room 156 located on the Armstrong Campus.

The documentary, filmed over the course of a single school year, follows five students and their families as they cope in different ways with cruelty from classmates while trying to fit in. Transcending geographic, racial, ethnic and economic borders, the film examines the growing issue of bullying in schools today and how students, parents, teachers and administrators are facing the problem.

The film sparked an ongoing effort called “The Bully Project,” which is a global movement to stop bullying and transform children’s lives by changing the culture of bullying into one of empathy and action. The movement website,, includes tools and resources on bullying for educators, students, parents and advocates.

Following the screening, the College will host a question and answer session with local professionals in the fields of social work, juvenile justice, counseling and bully prevention in schools.

This screening is the first in a series that will take place on the Armstrong Campus during the spring 2019 semester. Additional screenings include: “The Cartel” on March 5; “The School in the Cloud” on March 27; and “Elementary Genocide” on April 16.
