Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel  is an insight into the other side of Hugh Hefner – his rebellion against discrimination in the late 1950’s and 1960’s.
Told through interviews with those who knew him, through Hefner’s own words and his own scrapbooks – this documentary will change your opinion on the Man with the Mansion.
Receiving only a limited Melbourne International Film Festival release in 2010, this documentary finally gets a DVD release in Australia on April 14th 2011 through Roadshow Entertainment. 


In this phone inteview I speak to Brigitte Berman, about creating the documentary on Hugh Hefner,  on people’s perception of him, and of her own film career – which has included an Oscar.
