The 5th Annual Evan Lawson Filmmakers’ Brunch
June 17, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
AFTER THE REVELATIONS: A CANDID CONVERSATION WITH KIM MASTERS
20 years ago the veteran award-winning journalist Kim Masters confronted Harvey Weinstein at a lunch at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills and told him “I heard you rape women”. She went on to spend years trying to find someone to go on the record to reveal what many in the industry already knew. Kim used all of her investigative tenacity to report on the subject and reveal the alleged abuses by Amazon Studios Roy Price and Disney’s John Lasseter. She is a pivotal voice in the #metoo/#timesup movement that saw the tipping point this past year as a small group of journalists were finally able to work together to get industry insiders to go on the record so they were able to report the truth.
The Evan Lawson Filmmaker’s Brunch is honored to have Kim Masters talk in a candid conversation about her experience in Hollywood and what will come next for gender equity in the film industry after the revelations.
