Kristen Stewart PSa about DATE RAPE on College Campuses

This PSA was a part of a campaign for Security on Campus. It includes a 25 minute documentary entitled "Speak Out and Stand Up: Raising Awareness about Sexual Assault" which will be available later in the year to colleges and high schools across the country. The film features real life interviews with survivors of sexual assault as well as a scripted narrative about a girl who is the victim of acquaintance rape during her freshman year in college.

I worked closely with long time friend and colleague Amy Lawday who produced, co-wrote and edited the film. Together with writer/editor/asst Director Liron Reiter, the three of us made this film together. We were thrilled when Kristen Stewart of "Twilight" mega fame agreed to be the host of the PSA and the film. Security on Campus will have a red carpet premiere in Philadelphia on April 30th.
