It Happened Here Directed by Lisa F. Jackson, 2015
IT HAPPENED HERE is a feature-length documentary about the alarming pervasiveness of sexual assault on college campuses, the impact on the student, their family and institution, and the burgeoning movement of student survivors coming forth and taking action against their schools on campus and in federal court.
Through the personal portraits of five students at three schools, testimonials from college administrators, educators, mental health experts and legal scholars, IT HAPPENED HERE breaks the silence surrounding campus sexual violence and asks why is this happening? What are schools doing about it? What is “rape culture” and what can we do to prevent campus assault?
