Wurzweiler Hosts Advance Screening of “Bullycam”
With reports of young suicides linked to bullying on the rise and recent New York legislation obligating schools to investigate cyberbullying, Yeshiva University’s Wurzweiler School of Social Work hosted an advance screening of “Bullycam: The Video Diary of Kelly Wilson,” a feature film from the perspective of a bullied high school student, on July 9.
Nearly 100 people from across the New York area came together on the Wilf Campus to see the film, which was presented in collaboration with the Museum of Tolerance New York. “Bullycam” is a fictional narrative which purports to be the camcorder diary of Kelly Wilson, a teenager seeking to expose the bullies who torment her by capturing their abuse on video with the help of her best friend. The film is the feature debut of New York City filmmakers Brian Sizensky, Mike Marshall and Vera Hadzi, and has won awards at the Metropolitan Film Festival, NYC Independent Film Festival and the Buffalo/Niagra Film Festival. It has not yet been released to theaters. Read the rest of this entry…
