In this film, director, writer, and Academy Award winner Brigitte Berman profiles the outspoken Hugh Hefner. When he launched Playboy magazine in 1953, he became a champion of the sexual revolution, but the forces of Church and State initiated a war against him that raged over the decades. Hefner is seen both as a hedonistic playboy and as the man who’s been a groundbreaking advocate and catalyst for civil rights, the First Amendment, and human rights. The film captures Hefner’s fierce battles with the government, the religious right, and militant feminists. Compelling interviews with a remarkable Who’s Who of the decades, and rare footage, present a snapshot of the life of an extraordinary man and the controversies that surrounded him.

Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel is a Phase 4 Films and will be released July 30, 2010.
