CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

It's an issue too many kids have to deal with, bullying. Now a new movie out in theatres highlights the struggles of kids who are being bullied.

According to the movie, 13 million kids will be bullied in the U.S. this year.

The documentary shows real-life, emotional footage of children who are the victims of bullying, including two who committed suicide.

It highlights how we've all been affected by bullying, whether we're the victims, perpetrators, or stood as a silent witness.

One of the students in the film is even from Sioux City.

The University of Northern Iowa has the opportunity to host the director and producer of the movie Tuesday.

'Bully' director Lee Hirsch and producer Cynthia Lowen will be on campus Tuesday afternoon.  They will be part of a special panel discussion free to the public at 4:00 in the Sabin Auditorium.
