"Bullying" by Samantha Dockweiler
This powerful film was written and directed by a student in the Honors Holocaust class at Palm Beach Central High School. At the end of the course students are required to create a film as a final project that reflects what they have learned or what has made the greatest impact on them. This project brings to light through graphics, photos, and musical lyrics the many ways people are bullied: mental, cyber, physical an so on; and asks us to be upstanders and start to see people for who they are. We must stay vigilant about those we see that may be struggling.
This student's film eloquently underscores the urgency of being upstanders and extending empathy to combat various forms of bullying, reminding us of the vital importance of looking out for those who may be in need.
