cities of NY and LA'. But, people are people...and bullying is bullying. What I
learned in doing this film is that there are two main forms of
bullying--aggressive or active (obvious) and passive. I chose to make this film
about passive bullying because not only is passive bullying harder to prove, it
may be even more dangerous than obvious bullying.”
