Have to admit that we fell down a TikTok hole all about Bama Rush the past few years and we’re probably going to fall down it again this fall. No regrets about all the time that we’re going to be spending on the app and social media trying to figure out what is happening next, who will make it, and all of the moments that make up the goodness of rush week.
So yes, we will definitely be watching the Max Original documentary, Bama Rush.
In August 2021, the long-held tradition of sorority recruitment at the University of Alabama, also known as rush, went viral on TikTok. Becoming a viral sensation and cultural phenomenon using the hash tag “Bama Rush,” to date more than 2 billion people have watched. In the upcoming feature documentary BAMA RUSH, Fleit follows four young women as they prepare to rush at the university in 2022. In this nuanced and revealing documentary, Fleit explores the emotional complexities and stakes of belonging in this crucial window into womanhood.
