Director Muta'ali Muhammad and his colleagues succeed in delivering a tight, informative hour-long film that addresses cyberbullying, a critical issue affecting older kids and teens.

Submit the Documentary is earnest, comprehensive, and emotionally shattering. Carefully defining cyberbullying, using personal stories to provide emotional impact, and showing the powerlessness of those who are victimized (both the kids and adults they turn to for help) ultimately leads the filmmakers to find and deliver solutions. Difficult though those solutions may be to implement, the film offers hope, as well as concrete ways for kids to help themselves -- and others.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
