The Upstanders” delves into cyber-bullying, showing the perspectives of those who bully, their victims, and the trauma of the bystander. Woven through this film is a very personal, first-hand account of a family’s tragic loss that inspired new legislation to turn the tide against this concerning issue. True stories are featured alongside scientific and medical research, along with strategies to empower communities to stand-up against bullying and think about simple actions to perpetuate a culture of kindness.

The film features in-depth interviews with families who have lost their children to cyber-bullying related suicide, and experts from prestigious institutions including Stanford University and Child Mind Institute in NYC.

Through its experts, the film explores:

  • The science behind cyber-bullying
  • Why kids are afraid to admit they are cyber-bullied and signs to watch for
  • Best ways to support your cyber-bullied child
  • How to realize if you are harboring a cyber-bully
  • How the community can show resilience and power to end bullying
