We welcomed award-winning documentary filmmaker BYRON HURT and his producer NATALIE BULLOCK BROWN for a riveting conversation about Hurt's latest film HAZING which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival 2022. The film began airing on Independent Lens beginning Sept 12.

Hazing is a widespread, far-reaching practice fueled by tradition, secrecy, groupthink, power, and the desire to belong in fraternities and sororities on college campuses across the U.S. Filmmaker BYRON HURT embarks on a deeply personal journey to understand the underground rituals of hazing, revealing the abusive lengths college students will go to fit in.
