The Monterey County Rape Crisis Center (MCRCC) and the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (MIIS) are partnering to bring the critically acclaimed film “The Hunting Ground” to the Institute’s Irvine Auditorium at 499 Pierce Street, on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.
In the New York Times review of the film, Ann Hornaday stated “’The Hunting Ground’ makes clear that its message isn’t just intellectual, legal and political, but deeply emotional. In a series of harrowing interviews, young women — and a few young men — recount in sickening detail how they were attacked, raped, threatened and discounted on the very campuses that should have been safe harbors for their learning and personal growth.”
The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion in which local experts will illuminate the reality of sexual violence in Monterey County and throughout the world. Panelists include MCRCC’s Executive Director Clare Mounteer, Monterey County Assistant District Attorney Jeannine Pacioni, CSUMB Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Christine Erickson, and Institute Associate Professor and Director of the Center for Conflict Studies Dr. Pushpa Iyer.
