Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project

"This film is… Unauthorized!" Sundance Selects and IFC Films have recently debuted a short official trailer for Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project, the documentary about producer and Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. This played very briefly at TIFF in 2010, but hasn't been seen much since. Thanks to The Film Stage for the tip on the trailer. Unfortunately it doesn't really seem to show much, besides a brief snippet of some of the interviews they do have in it (since Harvey declined) and some of his red carpet appearances, but what else do they have? I want to see more from this! Take a look at the doc trailer below.

Watch the trailer for Barry Avrich's Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project, via YouTube:

Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project, directed by Canadian Barry Avrich (The Last Mogul), is as much an examination of the last 25 years of independent cinema as it is a story about Weinstein himself. Without Hollywood’s "Last Bully", there would be no Pulp Fiction, no one would have known about that English patient, Rob Marshall would still be a chorus boy and Quentin would be recommending Bruce Lee's greatest hits in some video store. His rise from an improbable concert promoter along with eventual Rolling Stones Tsar Michael Cohl, to what some call the "saviour of modern film", has been nothing short of spectacular and controversial. IFC/Sundance Selects will be releasing on October 7th this fall - for more.

I'll give this a go, it's interesting to find out about behind the senes stuff and how it almost seems impossible to get anything off the ground in the first place.

No doubt there will be many great interviews in this docu, further building Weinstein's image 🙂 Will be fun to hear if anyone doesnt like him and are interviewed in this, but I think there might not be many of those who dare? 🙂

I don't understand why this is featured on here now.  I have seen this on TMN already.

What? The doc hasn't actually ever been officially released yet, why wouldn't we feature a trailer for a film that's about to be released? You may have seen a European release or bootleg, but this is the first trailer we've ever seen.

Barry Avrich guest lectured my 'Business of Film' class at the University of Toronto last fall. I remember him mentioning this doc. I'll have to check it out.
