It was an amazing experience as DAFT welcomed filmmaker Doug Blush back to town as he shared the powerful documentary The Hunting Ground on June 25, 2015 through the generosity of the Emagine Theaters. (Watch it on-demand at this link.)
DAFT would like to thank the wonderful audience with its poignant questions and for sharing their stories. We would also like to particularly thank our panelists...

What a powerful and important film this is. Doug Blush mentioned the number of schools that have already screened it or plan to do so, which is great, but the message needs to get out to families even sooner. My mind actually went to my granddaughter, 16 years away from college, and was so heartened to hear Kole Wyckhuys of Haven say that Royal Oak schools have contracted with them for a program that begins in kindergarten. The message about self awareness and protection can hardly come too soon. Great work by so many was in evidence at the screening, both on the screen and in the audience.
