Apple, executive producer Oprah Winfrey, and Impact Partners today announced the Untitled Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering documentary film created by the celebrated Oscar-nominated filmmakers, set to premiere in 2020.

The film is a profound examination of race, gender, class and intersectionality, and the toll assaults take on their victims and society at large.

The Untitled Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering documentary feature is produced by Dick and Ziering's Jane Doe Films ("The Hunting Ground," "The Invisible War"), with Winfrey, Terry Wood (Harpo Productions), Dan Cogan (Impact Partners), Regina K. Scully (Artemis Rising), Ian Darling (Shark Island), Abigail Disney (Level Forward) serving as executive producers. The creative team includes producers Jamie Rogers and Amy Herdy.
