According to an Apple TV+ press release, the untitled Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering documentary, executive produced by Oprah Winfrey and Impact Partners, is set to premiere in 2020. The Sundance Festival confirmed that they will host the world premiere beginning in January.

Alongside, the New York Times and LA Times also reported the film’s primary subject will be Drew Dixon, a former music executive who accused music mogul Russell Simmons of raping her in his apartment in 1995. Dixon quit working at Simmons’ Def Jam Records shortly after the alleged incident.

Sundance describes the film as, “A brilliant former hip hop executive grapples with whether to go public about her rape by one of the most powerful men in the music industry. A gripping and profound examination of race, gender, intersectionality, and the toll ual abuse takes on survivors and on society at large.”

Back in December 2017 the New York Times interviewed three women—Dixon, Tina Baker and Toni Sallie—who detailed separate incidents where Simmons allegedly raped them. Following the report, Simmons released a statement  the NYT noting, “I vehemently deny all these allegations. These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual.”

The 2020 Sundance Film Festival will take place Jan. 23 – Feb. 2.
