In the wake of Weinstein, Cosby, Trump, #metoo and #timesup, it’s hard to recall a more timely documentary than Seeing Allred, an account of the life, career, and ongoing struggles of noted feminist, attorney, and absolute firebrand Gloria Allred. Now comes news that the film, directed by Sophie Sartain and Roberta Grossman, will have its world premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.
“As sexual violence allegations grip the nation, Seeing Allred provides a candid look at one of the most public crusaders against sexual assault and the war on women. Through rare archival footage and revealing sit-down interviews with both her supporters and critics, this fascinating biographical portrait examines Allred’s personal trauma and assesses both her wins and setbacks on high-profile cases against the likes of Bill Cosby and Donald Trump.
“Featuring interviews with Gloria Steinem, Don Lemon, Alan Dershowitz, Allred’s daughter Lisa Bloom, among others, Seeing Allred is portrait of a woman everyone thinks they know, at a time when those without need her the most.”
The film will presumably hit Netflix not too long after the festival, which runs from January 18 – 28, 2018.
