SUN VALLEY, ID (PRWEB) March 15, 2012
The Sun Valley Film Festival (March 15-18) is excited to announce two new film screenings to their festival lineup -- BULLY and THE INTOUCHABLES.
These two films highlight the broad variety scheduled to screen this year at Sun Valley. The festival's assortment ranges from features, documentaries and shorts, to children's programming, web series and television.
BULLY, directed by Sundance and Emmy-award winning filmmaker Lee Hirsch, is a beautifully cinematic, character-driven documentary. At its heart are those with huge stakes in this issue whose stories each represent a different facet of America's bullying crisis. BULLY follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. Stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals' offices, the film offers insight into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children. The film screens Saturday, March 17, 9:45 p.m. at the Opera House.
THE INTOUCHABLES (French narrative with English subtitles) is written and directed by Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano and tells the true story of two men who should never have met - a quadriplegic aristocrat who was injured in a paragliding accident and a young man from the projects. The film screens Friday, March 16, 7:30 p.m. at the Magic Lantern.
