Interview with "BULLY" Director Lee Hirsch
An interview with BULLY director Lee Hirsch was recently featured on the pop culture blog, 411 Mania, ahead of the film's February 12, 2013, DVD release. Hirsch tells 411 about the educational outreach for the film and role Facing History and Ourselves’ played by developing the film’s accompanying study guide.
“We worked really hard to build a really strong outreach campaign and movement around the film,” Hirsch told 411. “On the educator’s side, we were able to facilitate and raise funds for over a quarter of a million kids to go see the film together with their educators. Their educators did professional development. They worked with an incredible study guide prepared by a great organization called Facing History and Ourselves. They did webinars, they went on buses. They've created hundreds of projects around the country as a result of that. That's been amazing.”
