DOKKINO – Documentary Film Event for Children and Youth

Programme

#bullyingstory

In #bullyingstory we immerse into Rosalie’s (13) desktop. She has been bullied online the last couple of years. Because of the cyber bullying she doesn’t feel safe, not even in her own bedroom. The bullying has serious consequences: it’s hard for her to trust her peers, and therefore she finds it difficult to make friends.

Together with Rosalie we find hundreds of bullying stories of other young people on YouTube, where they tell their stories and how the bullying affected them. Rosalie opens up when she notices that she is not the only one who struggles with the same problems. Could the internet change from her ‘worst enemy’ into a ‘buddy’?
