Attention Mid-Missouri Glibbers! Go See Bully!

Yes, I’ve coined a new term for Women’s Glib readers: Glibbers.
Yes, it’s cheesy.
Anyay, if you are located in Columbia Missouri, check out the True/False Film Festival going on this weekend. And, especially check out a fantastic documentary about bullying, appropriately called Bully.
I had the chance to see Bully at the Savannah Film Festival last November, and I loved it. And I cried. A lot.
Bully follows once school year through the ees of children (and their parents) who experience horrific instances of bullying on a daily basis. You will also meet a variety of school administrators, whose responses to bullying vary from willing ignorance, to denial that bullying is truly a problem within their district.
Bully, like Food, Inc is not only a documentary, but a call to lead a grass-roots movement to put a stop to bullying. The Facebook page for the film offers a variety of ways to get involved.
Tickets at True/False sell out quickly, and each screening of Bully will feature appearances from the director Lee Hirsch.
Bully will open in wide release at the end of March, for those of you not located in the middle of the Show-Me State.
But seriously, go and see Bully. And bring tissues.
