The Hunting Ground
Gary Sutherland's entertaining journey to each of Scotland's 42 football grounds during one season.
From the makers of The Invisible War comes a startling expose of sexual assault crimes on U.S. college campuses, their institutional cover-ups and the devastating toll they take on students and their families. Weaving together verite footage and first person testimonies, the film follows the lives of several undergraduate assault survivors as they attempt to pursue - despite incredible push back, harassment and traumatic aftermath - both their education and justice.
Some people bag Munros; Gary Sutherland hunts grounds. Come rain, shine, sleet and snow, he visits each of the 42 football grounds in Scotland during one season, documenting the singing, the swearing, the sheer nonsense of what occurs every Saturday afternoon (and sometimes Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays too). Taking each ground as it comes, 'Hunting Grounds' offers an alternative travelogue round Scotland that covers every aspect of our beloved national game: the town and their teams, the fans and their obsessions; from practical factors like public transport and facilities, to the more important things like snacks and pubs.
