Audrie & Daisy


In different parts of the country, two high school girls are assaulted at parties by boys they call their friends. Bullied online and at school in the wake of their assaults, each girl is driven to attempt suicide. AUDRIE & DAISY probes this societal trend of assault and bullying from the perspective of the boys involved, the girls who are speaking out publicly for the first time, and the wider communities who were torn apart as a result. Ultimately, the film is an exploration of truth, power, trauma and memory at a time when America's teenagers are coming of age in this new world of social media spun wildly out of control.

Powerful, well crafted.”


It is documentaries like this that make one wish there were a federal agency that could just step in, reward the filmmakers handsomely for their noble efforts and then ensure every child in the country sees this for free by the time they graduate from middle school.”

-The Hollywood Reporter

Infuriating, heartbreaking and vital, AUDRIE & DAISY is required viewing.”

-The Guardian

AUDRIE & DAISY is a stark portrait of a problem which is not in any way local, aberrant, or random. The problem is systemic.”
