”Leaving Neverland”: on the ambivalent reception of a talking witness documentary [Paper]

Leaving Neverland was released almost ten years after the demise of celebrity pop singer Michael Jackson (1958-2009). In its four-hour course, Wade Robson (1982) and James Safechuck (1978) speak extensively about their childhood years, in which they claim to have been sexually abused by Jackson. Directed and produced by the British filmmaker Dan Reed (Children of the Tsunami, 3 Days of Terror: The Charlie Hebdo Attacks), and co-produced by Channel 4 (UK) and HBO (USA), the documentary film gained tremendous attention from media and audiences worldwide, especially after tailor-made versions were broadcast on television in several countries.
