Bohemia Media picks up rights to Wiser Films doc When We Speak

Rose McGowan in When We Speak

London-based producer-distributor Bohemia Media has picked up the distribution rights to UK indie Wiser Films’ upcoming feature documentary When We Speak.

Directed by Wiser Films’ co-founder Tasneem Brooker, When We Speak (1×90’) tells the story of three women at the centre of high-profile exposés, revealing what drove them to speak out and the fallout it had on their lives.

The film takes an in-depth look at three iconic contemporary figures who risked everything for the truth to be told, knowing the consequences would create worldwide scandals and also most likely ruin their lives.

It features Hollywood actress Rose McGowan who lifted the lid on Harvey Weinstein, intelligence officer Katharine Gunn who leaked confidential documents relating to the Iraq war and ex-Oxfam manager Helen Evans who uncovered the scale of the sex-for-aid scandal within the charity sector.

Launched by Phil Hunt, managing director of Bankside Films and Head Gear Films, Bohemia Media focuses on projects made by underrepresented groups.

The deal for When We Speak includes UK film, TV and theatrical rights, through which Bohemia is planning a UK limited-window release later this year. It will then be available for Netflix and other SVoD platforms, in addition to Bohemia’s recently launched SVoD service Bohemia Euphoria.
