Seeing Allred, an original documentary that explores the public and private sides of feminist firebrand attorney Gloria Allred, will have its world premiere in the US Documentary Competition at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

allred 1 dec 2017As sexual violence allegations grip the US, 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.

The debut is timely given that she is representing one of Senate candidate Roy Moore’s many accusers.

“I feel fortunate that Seeing Allred captures my passion and battle for justice for many victims of injustice,” said Allred. “The courage that my clients demonstrate, in speaking truth to power, inspires me every day as we fight together.”

Seeing Allred will launch on Netflix in early 2018, and was directed by Sophie Sartain (Mimi and Dona, 2015) and Roberta Grossman (Above and Beyond, 2014); produced by Grossman, Sartain, Marta Kauffman (co-creator of Friends and Grace & Frankie), Robbie Rowe Tollin (The Zookeeper’s Wife), and Hannah KS Canter (Grace & Frankie).
