Slut or Nut: The Diary of a Rape Trial

Hot Docs

Dubbed “the face of rape on campus” by the Canadian media, former York University student Mandi Gray is forced to grapple with a university administration, legal system and police force unwilling to take seriously her report of rape by a fellow PhD student. Frustrated by a system stacked against her, Gray turns to activism to advocate for herself and other women like her. Both heart-wrenching and inspirational, the film tracks her ups and downs through the court case against her accused rapist Mustafa Ururyar and unrelenting online harassment by men’s rights groups. Slut or Nut‘s punk aesthetic and raw feel offers us intimate insight into Gray’s personal and emotional struggles during this difficult time. What emerges is an infuriating picture of Canada’s deeply embedded rape culture. (Aisha Jamal)
