No Place to Hide: The Rehtaeh Parsons Story
No Place to Hide is a gripping documentary about a teenage girl from Halifax who, after being relentlessly cyberbullied and harassed following the online distribution of a photo taken while she was being sexually assaulted, ultimately ended her life. The film reveals the far reaching effects of cyberbullying, and the extent of rape culture and victim blaming all borne by one girl, Rehtaeh Parsons.

Speaker: Jacob Wells

At 24, Jacob Wells has unique insight and particularly though-provoking message for young and old alike. Jacob knew Rehtaeh Parsons and wonders: had he been there that night, would he have been one of those young men who brutally assaulted, then tormented Rehtaeh? Jacob will share his personal story and following the film, be available for discussion.
