According to the Hollywood Reporter, a new documentary about famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred will soon be available to stream on Netflix, following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
The film, called Seeing Allred, is directed by Sophia Sartain and Roberta Grossman. It reportedly focuses on Allred’s outspokenness against many powerful, allegedly sexually abusive men—Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, and President Donald Trump being among the most prominent—and her championing of the #MeToo movement.
Trevor Groth, Sundance director of programming, told THR on Wednesday that, due to the persistently newsworthy nature of the film’s subject, its directors anticipate having to make final adjustments to the documentary right up until the last minute. “The filmmakers did notify us that they were going to continue shooting to add to the documentary as all of the allegations were breaking,” Groth said. “So, there is a real sort of timely quality to that film.”
Here’s hoping for a day when everything awful no longer exists in a constant state of timeliness.
