A nearly four-hour documentary documentary about two boys who accused Michael Jackson of sexual abuse had its premiere Friday (25 JANUARY) at the Sundance Film Festival.
"Leaving Neverland" tells the story of two men who are now in their 30s and began long-running relationships with Jackson at ages 7 and 10 -- when Jackson was at the height of his fame. The two subjects, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, attended Friday's screening at the Egyptian Theatre in Park City, Utah and were seen leaving the theatre.
The Jackson estate has denounced the "Leaving Neverland," which was co-produced by HBO and British public broadcaster Channel 4 and will air on the channels this spring.
The film is produced and directed by BAFTA-winning director Dan Reed.
Jackson was acquitted of molestation charges in 2005. Several of his fans gathered outside the theatre Friday with signs supporting the pop star, who died in 2009.
