Oprah Producing Documentary About Sexual Assault in the Music Industry
The film by Kirby Dick will premiere on Apple TV+ in 2020
Published Dec 03, 2019Oprah Winfrey is producing a new documentary film about sexual assault in the music industry for Apple TV+. The project will be helmed by Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering, who will direct and produce the film. The as-yet-untitled project is due sometime in 2020.
The film will follow a former music executive who struggles with the choice to come forward as a survivor of sexual assault by a notable figure in the industry. It is described as "a profound examination of race, gender, class and intersectionality, and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large."
So far, none of the subjects of the film have been announced, just as it currently has no premiere date or title.
Both Dick and Ziering are Oscar-nominated filmmakers who have tackled the subjects of rape and sexual assault in their previous work. They are responsible for The Invisible War, a film about sexual assault in the military, as well as The Hunting Ground, about sexual assault on college campuses.
