A new Netflix documentary will give audiences a close, personal look into the life of one of the foremost champions for women. “Seeing Allred” follows the life of Gloria Allred, a prominent attorney who’s made it her life’s mission to defend and support women who might not otherwise have been heard. Take a peek at the documentary’s official poster (see above) and the trailer below.
Directed by Sophie Sartain (“Mimi and Dona”) and Roberta Grossman (“Above and Beyond”), “Seeing Allred” combines rare archival footage and new interviews from Allred, her supporters and her critics into a biographical portait of the hotshot attorney; the film also examines Allred’s personal trauma and her drive to advocacy. The documentary features in-depth conversations with feminist activist Gloria Steinem, journalist Don Lemon, lawyer Alan Dershowitz and Allred’s daughter, Lisa Bloom, among others.
Amidst the storm of sexual misconduct allegations sweeping Hollywood, “Seeing Allred” reminds us of one of the most visible and persistent advocates for women’s rights. The documentary also looks back on some of Allred’s greatest legal wins and setbacks in high profile cases against Bill Cosby and Donald Trump.
“Friends” co-creator Marta Kauffman produces alongside Robbe Rowe Tollin (“The Zookeeper’s Wife”), Hannah K.S. Canter (“Grace and Frankie”), Grossman and Sartain.
“Seeing Allred” premieres Feb. 9 on Netflix. Watch the trailer below.
