It is as easy as that. You have to watch this film. Everyone should watch it and then have a conversation of why this may be happening.

"The Hunting Ground" is a documentary about rape crimes in US colleges and how many of these stories get covered up for different reasons, including prestige, money or influence. It brings many of the victims and victims' families stories to the light, and a chance for them to be heard.

Even if it dedicates a fair amount of time to the "work" of the universities and the system in keeping these rapes silenced, this is not just a documentary on the reasons behind the cover-ups, but much more. It is the story of the victims and of how some of them have gotten together to try to stop the culture that protects the attackers from being persecuted.

The filmmakers do a very good job in explaining the situation and in giving all the victims a fair amount of time. The stories are balanced and all the factors are easily explained so the viewer can understand how it is these rapes are being, in the majority of cases, just plain ignored.

As said in the summary, this is one of those movies that everyone should watch.
