Audrie & Daisy


Audrie & Daisy Information

Audrie & Daisy is an American documentary film about three cases of rape.

The documentary includes the stories of two American high school students, Audrie Pott and Daisy Coleman. At the time of the sexual assaults, Pott was 15 and Coleman was 14 years old. After the assaults, the victims and their families were subjected to abuse and cyberbullying.

The documentary follows their outcomes through time, social media, court documents and police investigations. The film directors Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, a husband-and-wife team who have teenage children of their own, had been fascinated by the role of social media in teenage lives and were attracted to the subject of the Daisy Coleman story as "a modern-day 'Scarlet Letter' story".

Release

Audrie & Daisy had its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival on January 25, 2016. The film was purchased by Netflix for streaming and was released on September 23, 2016.
