Director Sarah Kernochan opens up about Harvey Weinstein burying her movie and ruining her career






  • Sarah Kernochan had her directional debut with "All I Wanna Do" in 1998 (AKA "Strike!" or "The Hairy Bird"), a movie that was bought by Harvey Weinstein.

  • After the first screening, he demanded to have 8 or 10 minutes cut out of the movie. When she questioned what he had in mind, since she had final say when it came to the final cut, he lashed out at her saying she didnt know anything and that he was rich.

  • He later apologized, saying he was going through "therapy".

  • He then didn't promoted the movie at all, so she spent $100,000 out of her own savings for a billboard and a week of screenings in New York to try to give the movie a chance.

  • She was later told that he only bought the movie to try to get close to the young and pretty cast that included Kirsten Dunst, Gabby Hoffman, Rachael Leigh Cook, and Heather Matarazzo.

  • Harvey recently said that he championed the careers of female directors, which got Sarah wondering how many fellow woman directors had the same experience with him.
