"From award-winning filmmaker Byron Hurt, Hazing offers a powerful, deeply personal look inside the culture of hazing in fraternities and sororities, sports teams, marching bands, the military, and beyond. Hurt, who belongs to a fraternity himself, talks to members of Black and historically white Greek-letter organizations and other groups that practice hazing, and gives voice to survivors of severe initiation rituals and the families of young people who died from being hazed. Expertly weaving these moving first-hand testimonies with insights from violence-prevention experts and campus professional staff, the film provides a nuanced and empathetic portrait of a culture that often confers a sense of belonging even as it too often leads to violence, sexual degradation, binge drinking, institutional coverups, and debased notions of manhood. Hazing is an extraordinary teaching tool for educators and advocates working to reform hazing culture and combat violence--especially those interested in bystander-based violence prevention and larger institutional, social, and cultural issues involving race, gender, identity, alienation, and belonging."--Container.
