Panelists include:

In his film, he examines five cases of youths who endure vicious persecution at the hands of their peers. Lee has first hand experience being bullied throughout childhood, which has helped shape his world view and the types of film he creates. BULLY, helps lift the silence and attitude that “kids will be kids.” His work is intended to not only reach those who have been the victims of bullying, but more importantly, those who still need an “empathy push.”
