BULLYING DIARIES

The Lost Signal of Democracy Poster Small

DURATION: 51min

Bullying used to be dismissed as a bit unfortunate, but mostly harmless and finally unavoidable part of growing up. Most people tend to recall teasing and fighting in the school playground and the neighborhood, even somewhat nostalgic. Is there, however, a certain point those common jokes and pranks between children stop being all that funny? Indisputably, yes.

Filmed in Greece and UK, Bullying Diaries is a vivid documentary, giving a chance to boys and girls that have experienced bullying, either as victims or perpetrators, to speak out. Aiming to raise public awareness with regards to the phenomenon, it explores the root causes of the problem, hoping that the often vicious cycle of bullying could break. Are we willing to listen when the children are talking?
