What did you think of the premiere of the #MeToo documentary series?
The documentary series, which premiered in New York City this week, aims to expose how sexual misconduct in the film industry is rampant.
The film series is co-directed by two former executives at Miramax and includes a diverse cast of female actors.
They include Miramux founder Arianna Huffington and actress Amy Schumer, who also starred in the documentary series.
It was co-produced by the New York Film Critics Circle, the Hollywood Reporter and Columbia Pictures.
Among the many women featured are former Hollywood producer and former producer of the “Bachelorette” and “American Horror Story” seasons, Meryl Streep, as well as “Sharknado 3” star and former President Joe Biden.
Amy Schumer is a producer on the documentary.
She said in a statement, “I’m honored to be part of the documentary and will be participating in the #TheMeToo campaign.
This is an important, powerful work that tells the stories of some of the most powerful women in the world.”
The film is also expected to feature more than 100 women who have come forward in the past year to speak out about sexual misconduct, including Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, Oscar-winning actress Jessica Chastain, comedian Lena Dunham, musician Lena Horne, actress-actor Rose McGowan and comedian Kathy Griffin.
Amy said, “This project is so important to me and so important for the women who are telling their stories because these stories are being silenced and because the voices of these women have not been heard in the media.
The women are so important.”
The Women’s March, which was organized by feminist activist Linda Sarsour, will be held at Washington Square Park on Saturday, Jan. 21.
It will be followed by protests in Washington, D.C. and in other cities.
