The documentary is described as â€œa profound examination of race, gender, classÂ and intersectionality, and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large.â€
Dick and Ziering are producing through their Jane Doe Films (â€œThe Hunting Ground,â€ â€œThe Invisible Warâ€). The executive producers are Winfrey, Terry Wood (Harpo Productions), Dan Cogan (Impact Partners), Regina K. Scully (Artemis Rising), Ian Darling (Shark Island) and Abigail Disney (Level Forward). The creative team includes producers Jamie Rogers and Amy Herdy.
Dick was nominated for an Academy Awards for â€œTwist of Faithâ€ in 2006. He and Ziering received an Oscar nom in 2013 for â€œThe Invisible War,â€ which centered on rape in the U.S. military. Their follow-up film, â€œThe Hunting Ground,â€ focused on campus sexual assault and their most recent pic, â€œThe Bleeding Edge,â€ covered corruption in the medical device industry.
Impact Partners has been involved in the financing of more than 100 movies, including â€œIcarus,â€ which won the 2018 Academy Award for documentary feature, and â€œWonâ€™t You Be My Neighbor?,â€ which won the 2019 Independent Spirit Award for documentary.
