PARK CITY, Utah – A documentary about former OU law professor Anita Hill is making its debut right now at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

The film was made more than 20 years after Hill accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.

You’ll recall, her testimony was at the center of a turbulent senate judiciary committee hearing.

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Mock first approached Hill years ago about a documentary but Hill declined the offer.

She later changed her mind after Mock promised Hill that her story would be in good hands.

The documentary, “Anita,” follows Hill from those hearings to the present.

Hill is currently an author and a professor of social policy, law and women’s studies at Brandeis University in Massachusetts.
