This content contains mentions of sexual assault, bullying/online harassment and suicide.From the Baylor University sexual assault case to President Obamas Its On Us?initiative to end sexual assault on college campuses, the topic is often recognized as a collegiate issue. However, Audrie & Daisy, a new documentary from the filmmaker team of Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk (The Island President, The Rape of Europa), shines a spotlight on the experiences of teenagers coming of age in a time of social media and bullying.We tackle a lot of really hard material in our documentaries, Cohen said via phone. Ive been commiserating about how this film has been the hardest one to make. Its so deeply personal, and tough to watch.Audrie & Daisy -- which premiered at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival -- tells the stories of Audrie Pott and Daisy Coleman, two teenagers from different communities in different states who were each sexually assaulted, then became fodder for gossip and bullying within their school communities. The torment was so intense that the then-15-year-old Pott, who lived in Saratoga, California, committed suicide eight days after her assault.Coleman, now 19, endured her own struggles as she fought for justice. People within her community did not believe her allegations. She was ostracized at school, and her familys house was burned down.The common thread for Coleman and Pott was that the current climate of teen usage of social media compounded the trauma of their assaults.Its a lawless society, Cohen said of the experiences of teens online. Kids are using social media and not really interacting with their parents about how theyre using it.Coleman had intended to put that January 2012 night behind her. Her family moved out of Maryville, Missouri, and back to Albany, Missouri, where they lived prior to the death of Colemans father in a car accident in 2009. She had closed that chapter in her life.After my case had gone viral, I didnt want to do a whole lot of speaking, and when Bonni and Jon came forward to me with the idea for the documentary, I was still a little partial [to not wanting to speak], Coleman said by phone.It was learning about Pott and other pending cases that inspired her to reopen this part of her life and share her story.I decided to speak out on their behalf, Coleman said.High school culture is heavily influenced by sports, especially in Maryville. At one point in the documentary, Daisys brother laments his own isolation as something hed never experienced before, explicitly because he did play football and baseball.Sports can have an excellent influence or they can have a really negative influence, depending on the vibe of the team and the vibe of the coach, Shenk said. We think sports have a giant role to play in the solution to this.Charlie Coleman, Daisys brother, started coaching high school baseball after his sisters experience. The documentary shows him teaching his students the importance of respecting?women above all. An avid supporter of the cause, he threw out the first pitch at a San Francisco Giants game for the teams Strike Out Violence Day.It isnt until the end of the documentary, however, that it is revealed that Daisy Coleman is an athlete herself.Coleman started wrestling when she was eight years old. Her achievements earned her an athletic scholarship to Missouri Valley College. The sport has been a big part of her life, but following her assault that relationship became complicated.Through elementary, middle and high school, they didnt have a womens division for wrestling, so I was wrestling all boys, Coleman said. After my assault, it was kind of hard for me to get back into it, but it also helped me develop stronger relationships with men.Coleman didnt start wrestling again until her family returned to Albany. The coaches wouldnt allow me to wrestle in Maryville, she said. By the time she hit the mats again, it had been a year since she endured the sexual assault -- she ended up feeling largely comforted and supported.[My teammates] were like brothers and friends to me, she said.Moving forward, Coleman hopes to become a tattoo artist. Shes always enjoyed art, but she thought being a painter or a graphic artist was a little bit too boring for her.Its really empowering to know that people trust you that much [enough to give them a tattoo], she said.Coleman continues to work for justice for young survivors. She volunteers with the organization Promoting Awareness for Victim Empowerment (PAVE), which empowers students, parents and civic leaders to end sexual violence with prevention education and promoting respect of oneself and each other. Through PAVE, she speaks with students and educating others on sexual violence.Its good to know that Im actually helping other people who went through something similar to me, Coleman said.Audrie & Daisy premieres on Netflix on Sept. 23.

Thon Maker has had to fight his whole life, and the No. 10 NBA draft pick has done it his own way.Even as a toddler in Sudan, he rallied against extreme adversity. At five years of age, Maker and his family fled the civil war, spending a year in Uganda before being accepted as refugees in Australia, settling down in Perth.Life was -- as it is for most refugees who flee conflicts and hardships to settle in strange lands - tough. Initially, the youngster found his refuge in soccer before a basketball talent scout and social worker named Edward Smith intervened, encouraging the incredibly athletic, fiercely driven young man to move to Sydney to pursue his dream of playing in the NBA.As Makers frame and dream grew bigger, he and Smith soon made an even bigger move, relocating to the U.S. where Maker soon wowed basketball scouts and fans alike with his burgeoning mix of athleticism, skills, flare and hardworking attitude.The towering 7-foot-1 colossus seemed to have the basketball world at his feet if he remained in the U.S and continued his natural improvement. But Maker had other ideas, moving to Canada in 2014 to attend Orangeville Preps Athlete Institute.The decision was heavily scrutinised by many in the basketball industry, but Maker didnt think twice, confident his way was the right way.The surprises didnt end there, though.On the verge of a college career - the easiest path for young stars to forge a NBA career, with the vast majority of draftees selected from colleges - he decided to risk it all and nominate for the draft straight away.The decision stunned the NBA world but it was another example of Makers forthright decision-making.It was a risk. A biig risk.ddddddddddddIn the lead-up to the 2016 NBA Draft, Maker was the mystery man. Who was he? What type of player was he and what would he become? Where would he be picked? There was even controversy about his age - with some suggesting he was older than he claimed, which Maker laughed off with customary dignity and poise.Ten picks into the draft, Maker became the first high school player taken in the first round since 2005 when the Milwaukee Bucks called his name.He made it, and he did it his way by going against the grain.We liked what we saw in Thon as a player, the teams general manager John Hammond said after the draft. But the more we got to know him, the more excited we became. Hes a very extraordinary person.And after such an unusual, arduous and taxing path to the top of the basketball world, Maker knows his journey is only just beginning.I want to be great, he said soon after being drafted. And I know the whole path just started again.He also wants to inspire others who dont get an easy ride early in life.[I] definitely [see myself as an inspiration] - not just [in] Australia but all around the world, the 19-year-old said.A lot of kids make this journey and they want to find a way to be successful, and when they see somebody do something like this they want to find out what made you think that way - you made certain decisions to get to where you are, so what were they?Ill be able to provide advice to those who want to be in this position and theres kids in my situation that can see this as an inspiration definitely.
