Producer/director Ondi Timoner has the rare distinction of winning the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival twice. Her 2004 doc, Dig!, explores the star-crossed rivalry of the Dandy Warhols and the Brian Jonestown Massacre, while her 2009 top prize-winner, We Live in Public, examines privacy in the virtual age through Internet visionary Josh Harris’ social experiments. Her company A Total Disruption releases weekly short docs about thought leaders and doers who are transforming our lives through technology.
Through the eyes of two Cosby survivors and two Weinstein survivors, we catch up on the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements and explore what’s happened (and what hasn’t) since the sexual abuse and rape allegations against Bill Cosby — and subsequently Harvey Weinstein — opened the floodgates for women everywhere to speak out and pursue justice. Host Ondi Timoner talks with working actors/survivors Victoria Valentino, Lili Bernard, Jessica Barth and Caitlin Dulany to look at how far we’ve come, how far we still have to go, and what we can do. We witness the loving and ultimately game-changing unions forged among the survivors, who have worked to put legislation and regulations in place to stop the cycle of abuse in the Hollywood system. Through speaking out and innovating new organizations, these brave women are forcing industrywide change.
