Bush House Sessions #XTEND - "Disparities"
'Disparities' is a new documentary focusing on the gender culture and prevalence of sexual assault at the University of California, Santa Barbara. While on a study abroad placement from King's, filmmaker Samuel Davies sat down with 9 students to discuss a range of gender related issues in their small beach town of Isla Vista, including university housing, party culture, the separation of men and women, and the sexual violence that these structures might facilitate. Gathering a range of perspectives and insights, the documentary aims to raise awareness for these issues, and encourages us to think about the similarities or differences we can draw between this student culture and our own, here in the UK.
