LOS ANGELES | The Latest: Jackson estate denounces Sundance documentary
LOS ANGELES —January 09, 2019— The Latest on the Sundance Film Festival’s addition of a documentary featuring Michael Jackson‘s accusers (all times local):
The estate of Michael Jackson is denouncing a documentary about two of his sexual-abuse accusers that will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival later this month, calling it “just another rehash of dated and discredited allegations.”
The estate said in a statement Wednesday that the documentary “Leaving Neverland” ”is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson.”
The Sundance Institute announced earlier Wednesday that the documentary had been added to the festival lineup.
