“Hello Herman” DVD and Blu-Ray Release to Commemorate National Bullying Prevention Month
Warren, NJ, October 03, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Passion River Films is proud to announce the upcoming DVD and Blu-Ray release of “Hello Herman,” scheduled to coincide with the 2013 National Bullying Prevention Month.
“Hello Herman,” starring Norman Reedus from AMC’s smash-hit series “The Walking Dead,” is a provocative drama that confronts the issues of bullying, school violence, gun control, and capital punishment. The film follows controversial video blogger Lax Morales (Reedus) as he interviews a tormented high school student (Garrett Backstrom) driven to murder 39 of his classmates. “Hello Herman” explores the various factors, including bullying, social alienation, and readily accessible weapons, that can turn a seemingly average teenager into a cold-blooded killer.
The film has been praised for both its production and its bold anti-bullying message. Sam Kashner of Vanity Fair named “Hello Herman” a “powerful and important work, a darkly brilliant tone poem about America’s tango with violence and fame.” In response to the message of the story, anti-bullying organization Champions Against Bullying and art collective Art Effect collaborated on launching the Hello Herman Project, which provides educational tools and activities to combat bullying in schools.
“Hello Herman” will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 8, 2013 through Passion River Films.
