Sophie Sartain and Roberta Grossman’s Sundance-bound original documentary Seeing Allred will launch across digital streaming giant Netflix early in the new year.

The biographical portrait (pictured) will provide a candid look into the public and private lives of Gloria Allred — one of the America’s most famous women’s rights attorneys.

Through archive footage and exclusive sit-down interviews with Allred’s supporters and critics, the film examines Allred’s personal trauma while spotlighting her wins and setbacks on high-profile cases against individuals such as Bill Cosby and Donald Trump.

Interviews featured in the doc include conversations with Gloria Steinem, Don Lemon and Allred’s daughter, Lisa Bloom.

A Netflix Original Documentary, Seeing Allred is produced by Grossman, Sartain, Marta Kauffman, Robbie Rowe Tollin and Hannah KS Canter. LA-based Okay Goodnight and Lisa Thomas’ Katahdin Productions are the production companies attached to the film.

Netflix will launch the film globally following its world premiere in the U.S. Documentary Competition at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

“I feel fortunate that Seeing Allred captures my passion and battle for justice for many victims of injustice,” said Allred in a statement. “The courage that my clients demonstrate, in speaking truth to power, inspires me every day as we fight together.”
