The rape trial of the 67-year Harvey Weinstein who was charged with predatory sexual assault was followed by many at Sundance film festival 2020 and they were disgusted by his charges. One way or another, everybody followed the trials and gave serious remarks.
One of the producers backed up Weinstein’s questionable and disgraceful actions in the indie film world implying the accusations were right all along as the former “Project Runway” assistant Mimi Haleyi gave her statement against Harvey. Another female producer at the 2020 Sundance festival said that the sexual attacks were “sickening”.
After the testimony of another rape victim Annabella Sciorra who claimed that she was also raped by Harvey, there is a huge probability that he could be thrown in jail under a life sentence.
Rosie Perez who’s a star in one of the 2020 Sundance movies “The Last Thing He Wanted” corroborated her friend Annabella’s testimony on the first day of the festival. Perez stated that “She told me never to tell anybody, but I told her to go to the police, she said she can’t because ‘he will destroy me”
A filmmaker while being disgusted by Harvey’s assault stated “it disgusts me to read her testimony and what he did to her,” and added “What really disgusts me also is that it has taken so long to get him in court and all the other women who are unable to have their day in court”
