HEADLINE ->Harvey Weinstein Paid Off Sexual Harassment Accusers for Decades-Explosive New York Times report said Weinstein had previously settled eight sexual harassment claims.
“Judging Weinstein is not the solution to end sexual harrassment. The continuous candid conversations about the heavy issue will provoke change in Hollywood.” -Angela M. Hutchinson, PBS Documentarian.
Producer, writer and entrepreneur Angela Marie Hutchinson produced the feature PBS documentary, H.U.S.H. about Hollywood’s Uncovered Sexual Harassment. H.U.S.H. marks Hutchinson’s directorial debut. In response to Harvey Weinstein’s recent sexual harassment allegations, Hutchinson urges professionals to host HUSH screenng parties followed by a candid conversation with the family and friends. “One of the best ways to reduce sexual harassment in the industry is simply to talk about it. The documentary is an enlightening way to address a serious issue. We had a viewing party in Atlanta, and it was a huge success. I’m hosting another one in Dallas in November.”
According to Hutchinson, H.U.S.H. is not just a documentary but a movement. “In a society where women are often objectified, sexual harassment is not only extremely prevalent but often overlooked, especially in the entertainment industry,” says HUSH Associate Producer, Kausar Mohammed. “Our documentary gives a voice to the many women who have been through such experiences, in attempts to garner greater attention to a contributing factor that hinders the success of women in the industry.”
