Michael Jackson little one abuse documentary set for Channel four launch

Leaving Neverland, a brand new four-hour documentary exploring two males’s accusations of being abused by Michael Jackson as youngsters, is being broadcast on HBO and Channel 4 this spring.

The press release describes the movie that follows “two males who recount their experiences of being sexually abused by Michael Jackson” as “gut-wrenching”.

The movie is produced by award-winning filmmaker Dan Reed, who based HBO’s Terror sequence, and is debuting at Sundance Film Festival this month. The format is a pair of two-hour episodes, relatively than a four-hour function size movie.

Reed stated:“If there’s something we’ve realized throughout this time in our historical past, it’s that sexual abuse is difficult, and survivors’ voices must be listened to. It took nice braveness for these two males to inform their tales and I've no query about their validity. I consider anybody who watches this movie will see and really feel the emotional toll on the lads and their households and can respect the energy it takes to confront long-held secrets and techniques.”

The Estate of Michael Jackson released a statement in response, calling the movie “yet one more lurid manufacturing in an outrageous and pathetic try to take advantage of and money in on Michael Jackson. … This so-called ‘documentary’ is simply one other rehash of dated and discredited allegations. It’s baffling why any credible filmmaker would contain himself with this venture.”
