Lady Gaga and Diane Warren’s Academy Award-nominated song, “Til It Happens To You,” has become an anthem for survivors of sexual assault and all forms of trauma. If you saw Gaga’s riveting performance at the Oscars, you know why. In a historic moment for survivors of assault around the world, Lady Gaga was joined by 50 survivors of campus sexual assault, many of whom were featured in The Hunting Ground, including Kamilah Willingham, Annie Clark, Andrea Pino and Sofie Karasek.
As survivors and artists, Diane and Gaga created the song for our film in order to draw attention to and help address the national crisis of sexual violence against young people. With more than 26 million views on YouTube and an Academy Award nomination, they have certainly succeeded. Music has the power to move people, and we hope those of you who haven’t seen the documentary will be moved to learn more about this crisis.
You can rent or buy The Hunting Ground on iTunes, and starting March 14th, it will be available on Netflix. Sign up on this page and we’ll remind you when it’s released.
If you’ve already seen the film, please share it with someone you know. The more people who know about this ongoing crisis, the sooner we can end it.
