Last month Apple announced a new Apple TV + documentary. The premise of the film is about a musician from the music world who fought between telling about sexual abuse and the abuse he had committed in the music industry. In addition, Apple has announced in a press release that Oprah Winfrey will be the executive producer of the books. Anyway, after a month, Oprah announces that she is divorcing the documentary due to artistic disagreements. The film will headline the Sundance film festival in late January as planned as the filmmakers have announced.
A film directed by Kirby Dick, Amy Ziering and produced by Oprah Winfrey
First, I want them to know that I believe in and support them unequally by women. Their stories deserve to be told and heard. In my opinion, there is a lot of work to be done in the film to shed light on the total amount of victims enduring, and it has become clear that even the filmmakers and I do not subscribe to that creative idea.
This is the key to understanding Oprah's departure from the film directed by Dick and Ziering, directors of & # 39; Invisible War & # 39; Oprah was introduced to the project near the end of the development, meaning many of the ideas she could give her were no longer valid or the directors didn't want to make them successful. Obviously, Winfrey has said that the view of a sexually abused artist It may not be the background of the film or it may be disclosed as they would like, which can cause conflict with the directors. In the end, Oprah took the decision stop being a great producer for a movie that I did not share specific features.
The former superb music executive who manages to publicly perform his story of beatings and harassment is a notable figure in the music industry. The film is an in-depth exploration of race, gender, class and fellowship, while victim attacks affect its victims and society as a whole.
These are the footage of the film in question to be released at the end of January at the Sundance Film Festival, as the directors have confirmed, but without Oprah's backing in which they have voiced their statement for not supporting women's support:
Although we are disappointed that Oprah Winfrey is no longer the main producer of this project, we are pleased that Winfrey has openly expressed her belief in and support for the survivors of the film. The #MeToo experiences of black women deserve to be heard, especially against powerful men, so we will continue our plans to bring the film to the Sundance Film Festival. The film, which has been running for over two years, will be our eighth film to be released at the festival. This film is a testament to the hope of long-established voices, and is an inspiration to anyone who wants to reclaim their power
