TB DOCUMENTARY?
« on: December 31, 2006, 02:27:10 PM »
According to suescheff.com (PURE)

Sue Scheff was contacted by Zadig Production in France in 2002 to assist with a documentary that outlined the alleged abuse of teens today in facilities as well as her publicized trial that she won against WWASPS in 2004. The film aired in Australia in 2006, however is not yet scheduled for release in the United States.

In another thread on Fornits, it appears there is considerable speculation about why this documentary is not yet scheduled for release in the U.S  (e.g.)  Is it because lawsuits have been filed?  If so, is there a way to identify these lawsuits so they can be monitored by the public?  In my opinion, it seems like a waste of time to engage in speculatation about an issue that could very well be answered by those with access to researching court filings or were involved in some way with the documentary.

Has anyone ever tried contacting the production company (Zadig) directly and asking them whether the documentary is going to be released in the U.S. and if so, when?  Or if they are aware of any legal issues?

Good question.  Does anyone know WHO is holding it up?  If there is a court case can anyone get the information?  It would be important to track this b/c something smells very fishy with this revelation Scheff on her web.

Did Sue Scheff really "win the lawsuit against WWASP in 2004" or was she ACTUALLY just found NOT GUILTY?

Big difference between WINNING and being found NOT GUILTY.

The news stories say the jury found against WWASP but that Sue Scheff lost her claims against WWASP.  

I guess they both lost when you think about it.  Sue's daughter brought a suit against wWASP after WWASP sued Sue and Jeff and Barbie.  Sue's daughter lost and then the jury "found against WWASP" but no one won or lost money.

Sounds like the only PEOPLE who "won anything" were a bunch of lawyers!!!!!

What did Sue's daughter sue WWASP about?  The abuse she supposedly suffered at the facility HER MOTHER sent her to?

Wonder if anyone has ever asked this daughter how she feels about HER MOTHER referring kids to WWASP faciilties for money?
Gotta feel sorry for this girl.

So what's the problem with the documentary being released in the U.S if it was released in places like Australia and France?  This makes no sense at all.

Doesn't a network have to buy this documentary in order to show it on TV over here?

IMO, if the documentary could be shown in the US it would be, at least that's the logical conclusion given the documentary was made to be shown in the widest market available, I would think.

Perhaps the best thing to do is find out HOW it was shown in the other countries?  How were the rights to distribute the documentary in the European markets obtained and by whom?

To be shown in the U.S. (assuming there are no legal restraints) one would have to buy the distribution rights.  Isn't that how it works?  Maybe that's the problem.  No one has bought the rights or the "rights to distribution" are some how in dispute, or otherwise unobtainable at the moment?

Who the hell knows?  As was pointed out earlier, this documentary has been promoted on various websites operated by persons who appear to have some connection with the documentary.  I suggest interested parties contact these people, or the producers.

Also, anyone with access to legal filings may be able to find out if there are any lawsuits filed.  

Either way, it sounds like the documentary definitly had an impact on people who were fortunate enough to watch it.  Apparently there are two versions, one longer than the other.  Anyone know what was deleted from the shorter version?

Pure connection with French Documentary

You can search the court records.  Isn't it strange that one of the companies is in France distributing and one is shown in the area where Sue Scheff lives?

Makes a person wonder the connection with PURE? Then there is Sue promoting one of the versions the shorter version. Dont know but kind of strange.

Anyone know? Did anyone else notice it?

Yup something is not adding up here.

There is something strange about Sue Scheff and the statement she made below on her web site.

the documentary in Aust. was not about Scheff yet she says it was about her trial. Ture the trial was in it but it was about the kids.

There is somewhere a longer documentary that aired in France but no one seems to know much about it except WWASP was trying to stop it. but how do we know it was WWASP?  Who started saying thsi?  Has anyone seen the documentary from France?

It seems strange that the distributor is in Pembrook Pines in Florida near where Sue Scheff is.  Something isn't adding up here. Ummm.....

"Sue Scheff was contacted by Zadig Production in France in 2002 to assist with a documentary that outlined the alleged abuse of teens today in facilities as well as her publicized trial that she won against WWASPS in 2004. The film aired in Australia in 2006, however is not yet scheduled for release in the United States."

Here it is right here are the distributors who live close to Sue Scheff.  Pembroke pines is close to Weston. Sheff lives in Weston Florida. There is some kind of connection here and with this film not getting out in America. How could this be a coincidence?

DISTRIBUTORS

BuzzKill you are on to something!  Maybe calling the distributor in Pembroke?

Somebody knows something, that seems clear enough.

Hope someone can get to the bottom of this, or at least figure out what the problem is with distribution in the U.S.  because it doesn't seem fair the documentary which is about an AMERICAN issue is only available to be watched by people who are not americans.

We need some answers!

The version in France was different from the one in Australia. Sue promotes the one in Australia and Caica promotes the one in France.  

Very strange if you ask me. There is something hanky-panky going on with those two.

And good question about this being about America yet it can't be released here. This sounds like something Sue Scheff is behind and not WWASP.
