GOAT Screening Events
National Hazing Prevention Film Resources
Starring Nick Jonas, Ben Schnetzer and James Franco, and based on the memoir by Brad Land, GOAT tells the story of two brothers who become embroiled in hazing at a college fraternity. What occurs in the name of ‘brotherhood’ tests both boys and their relationship in brutal ways. Directed by Andrew Neel, the film received wide acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival and is available on demand and digital HD by Paramount Home Media Distribution, or through Screen Licensing Firms (please see to the right for contact information).
GOAT offers a realistic and harrowing depiction of the sometimes devastating effects of hazing. Without painting anyone as ‘good’ or ‘evil,’ this well-crafted film gives us an excellent opportunity to open a discussion about the psychological and philosophical underpinnings that give rise to hazing and why it is so critical to prevent it.
