Unauthorized Harvey Weinstein documentary going to IFC


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: A busy day for IFC Films.

Shortly after announcing that they’ve acquired rights to Werner Herzog’s 3-D doc “Cave of Forgotten Dreams,” the distributor reveals that it has picked up Barry Avrich’s “Unauthorized: The Harvey Weinstein Project,” a “powerful, uncensored, no-holds-barred” film that traces Weinstein’s early path from Buffalo concert promoter to his first Oscar and first $100 million film. and breaking the bank with his first $100 million film. Avrich, you may remember, also created of the critically-acclaimed Lew Wasserman doc, “The Last Mogul.” Peter Fonda narrates “Unauthorized.”

“I believe that great stories must be told. Harvey and Bob Weinstein, without a question, redefined so many rules of Hollywood marketing, distribution and filmmaking that you simply can’t ignore their impact on history,” said Avrich. “Many of their business principles and strategies also redefined other industry practices and quite frankly, other industries. 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.”

“Barry has made an entertaining and provocative film that sheds a tremendous amount of light on what makes this legendary mogul tick,” said Jonathan Sehring, president of IFC Films.
