Harvey Weinstein will make his comeback at the Sundance festival, but not as a producer. This time, the former tycoon of American cinema will be present as a subject of a documentary. This is what the independent film festival has just announced in a statement.

 

 Untouchable , by Ursula Macfarlane, will tell the story of the rise and fall of one of Hollywood’s big names, from the early successes of his films with Miramax and The Weinstein Company, to accusations of rape and sexual assault (a hundred or so women have claimed to have been his victims) who precipitated his fall.

Hunting-ground

The projection of Untouchable to Sundance is all the more important as Harvey Weinstein has long been a key figure in the independent festival, since he and his brother have made Miramax the most powerful independent production company in Hollywood.

 

By selecting Untouchable , Sundance wants, it seems, to show once and for all that he is done with the Weinstein era.
