The Bully Project

A film about the effects of bullying in American schools

Lee Hirsch

The Bully Project reveals the unheard stories of children who have fallen victim to the bullying crisis that affects the lives of more than 13 million American kids at school every day.

We hear from of a group of students and their families who speak candidly about how bullying has taken its toll not only on the kids but the entire family.

The movie draws attention to the sad stories of Tyler Long and Ty Smalley, victims who could no longer cope with the effects of bullying, resulting in both children committing suicide.

Filmmaker Lee Hirsch, who is a victim of bullying, said during an interview that the being bullied as a child was the inspiration behind the movie.

“I felt that the hardest part of being bullied was communicating,” Hirsch said. “And getting help. I couldn’t enroll people’s support. People would say things like ‘get over it,’ even my own father and mother. They weren’t with me. That was a big part of my wanting to make the film. It’s cathartic on a daily basis.”

Hirsch hopes The Bully Movie will inspire advocacy, engagement, and empowerment not just in the children being bullied, but by those who stand there watching and doing nothing to help. He stated: “I hope we build something that’s really sustainable. I hope this takes on a life of its own.”

  1. The full film is not available yet, if/when it becomes available this page will be updated. 🙂

    1. alrite thanks for the info. Right now, there is nowhere to watch this, I mean NOWHERE. Its not even in theatres here.

      1. I look for a full release every week but unfortunately nothing yet. :/

    1. it says it comes in 2013 (on the official website). What is the point of releasing it that late?!

    1. You can click the amazon link above the video and watch it via amazon instant video. Costs about $3.

  2. And turns out, I can’t watch the movie on this site because it’s a YouTube video that Starz blocked in America because of “copyright.” Lovely.

  3. As I read the words of the filmmaker it’s as if he’s narrating my story. I am now a 52 yr old, happily married woman and although I was only bullied by one certain girl and it was only in the 5th grade I know it changed me. I know I’m different. I trust animals more than humans. And a person doesn’t measure their success by how many friends they have. I”m lucky to have my husband and my Nellie Isabella ( yellow lab ) .

  4. Thanks! I give it 5 stars! I instead of making the country watch President Trump, this should be shown. It starts at home.

    1. I agree with you. Instead of people watching things that made up and trying to get people get mad, sad, or other things. They need to be show WHAT REALLY happens. Not just like “oh…. ya…. that happened oh… well….” There is things that happen because of that and it not just that. There is so many things that people don’t see or don’t notice. They need to watch this to see what really happens and how people can help.

  5. What the hell is wrong with the teachers? “By not shaking hands you are just as bad as him” Seriously??? That bully is not trying to apologise at all, he’s just doing what you want him to do and now you’re making the victim out to be worse. FFS, this makes me so angry.
