Anti-Bullying Film by Edina High School Grad Hits Cinema
A west metro student is standing up against bullying on the big screen.
"Minnesota Nice? A Documentary on Bullying in Minnesota Public Schools," premiered at the Edina Cinema Friday night.
Its creator is 18-year-old Alec Fischer, who says he was bullied so badly he considered suicide. He says he's seen the same happen to many schoolmates at Edina High School, so he decided to fight it with this film.
"For every kid that sees it, hopefully two kids now will stand up against a bully," Fischer said.
Fischer started work on the film last November, then showed it at Edina High last May. School leaders say it was so powerful that they plan to make the film part of the curriculum.
