hunting ground movie screeningsApril is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and the Haywood Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Task force is sponsoring three free screenings for the public, with special invitation to high school and college students and their parents, of the award-winning documentary about rape on college campuses, The Hunting Ground.

“This powerful documentary,” said Task Force facilitator Buffy Queen. “It should be seen by every high school senior and college transferee, as well as their parents, before they leave for college. It is a brilliantly filmed expose of the sexual assault experiences that many college coeds have gone through at schools across the nation and the challenges they faced trying to get help and justice. We are so grateful to Haywood Community College and The Strand Theater for partnering with us for these screenings.”

The free, one-hour screenings, appropriate for high school students and older, are scheduled as follows:

  • April 14, Haywood Community College Auditorium, Clyde, 2:30 and 4 p.m.
  • April 21, The Strand Theater, 38 N. Main St., Waynesville, 7 p.m.

Following the screenings, members of the Task Force as well as trained sexual assault counselors will be available for questions and answers.

For more information, call REACH of Haywood at 828.456.7898 or 30th Judicial District Alliance, 828.452.2122 or go to REACH’s facebook page.
