No one has the slightest doubt that history will always be divided into before and after the Weinstein scandal, when one of the biggest, or maybe the biggest, film producers of recent years, the man behind the successes of Quentin Tarantino and Oscars for Shakespeare in Love, sometimes better known than the stars he worked with, after years of impunity, has suddenly ceased to be untouchable. In Ursula Macfarlane's documentary, his victims, sometimes for the first time in their lives, share traumatic memories that, despite the passage of time, they still cannot forget. They endure like the so many endless hotel corridors, bathrooms and rooms in which a man who had the ear of all of Hollywood liked to arrange his "meetings". Well-known actresses, former assistants and even women of his youth together try to understand why they were forced to remain silent for so long. And why they were stubbornly told that what happened to them was also their fault.
Ursula Macfarlane is an award-winning director and producer who lives in Great Britain and has been nominated four times for the BAFTA Award. She has made, among others, One Deadly Weekend in America and Breaking Up with the Joneses. Her latest documentary Untouchable screened at Sundance and gives voice to Harvey Weinstein's victims who share their difficult experiences - famous actresses and ordinary women who have only now found the strength to talk about their trauma.
