Headlines are filled with tragic stories of senseless murders and suicides that have resulted from child and teen bullying.

She is an adjunct instructor in Sociology at Bergen Community College. She received her Master's degree in Social Work from Columbia University.



Cynthia Lowen is the co-creator, producer, and writer of Bully, a feature documentary film following five kids and families through "a year in the life" of America's bullying crisis. Following the film's 2011 premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, it was acquired by The Weinstein Company and will be released in theatres nationwide in March 2012. Bully has been received with acclaim at festivals, winning the Brizzolara Family Foundation Award for films about conflict and resolution at the Hamptons Film Festival, and at the Bergen Film Festival it was awarded the Youth Jury Award. In anticipation of the impact Bully will have in catalyzing national change on this issue, the film's director, Lee Hirsch, was featured on Anderson Cooper's Town Hall on Bullying this past fall on CNN, as well as the Dr. Phil show. In addition, Cynthia has presented the film in panels at the World Wide Conference on Human Values featuring the Dalai Lama, Silverdocs, and the Tribeca Film Festival. Cynthia is also an award-winning writer and the recipient of the Discovery Prize. Her work has been selected for inclusion in Best New Poets 2008, and she has been awarded a fellowship to the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts; the Campbell Corner Prize; and the Tin House/Summer Literary Seminars Kenya Prize, among other honors. Her work has been published widely in journals, including A Public Space, Boston Review, Inkwell, Provincetown Arts, and Tin House, among others. From 2001 to 2006 she served as an editor at Four Way Books, and is currently developing a narrative drama series for television about the making of the atomic bomb.
