Several months ago, Amanda Palmer and co-singer/writer Jasmine Power released their quickly assembled song, “Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now,” as a visceral artistic response to the sexual assaults being discussed in the news cycle. The profits from the song were donated to #TimesUp.

Then, this past July, a group of women from all walks of life gathered one Sunday in a former Episcopalian rectory in Brooklyn, NY under the direction of choreographer Noemie Lafrance to create an explosive video to accompany the song. The cast, production and set crew were comprised of over 60 women from the New York area working on both sides of the camera. Many of the cast were performers with little or no film or stage experience from Palmer’s extensive internet fanbase.

Today, the music video for “Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now” is released. Palmer wanted to release it on October 5 to mark one year to the day since the New York Times exposed Harvey Weinstein’s decades of sexual harassment.

“For an entire day, a congregation of women worked together to create a collective battle-cry response to this moment in time,” says Palmer. “Working on this project fundamentally changed me inside. The act of running, sweating, laughing and filming with this group of powerful, determined, and shamelessly naked women was a stark reminder of what we are capable of doing when we join forces, roll up our sleeves, take off our masks, and create.”

 

Director Noemie Lafrance (who Palmer tapped for this project after seeing her work with fellow songwriter Leslie Feist) says: “How does one talk about rape, or even harder, illustrate it in a music video? It is too painful of a subject, and in many ways a taboo subject. What inspired me about the song is that it dared talking about rape in all of its different shades of grey. There is a line in the song that particularly moved me: ‘…let’s get this over with’ because it explores the fine lines of coercion. I felt that in the context of the Weinstein story it encapsulated the real sadness in this for all parties. I wanted the video to reflect that and be about the sadness, rather than the atrocity.”
