Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel Official Trailer

The trailer for Brigitte Berman’s Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel (a Canadian production!) has hit the net. The film seems to focus on Hef’s advocacy of human rights and his role in the progression of free speech through his Playboy Magazine empire. It also looks to explore some of the contradictions Hugh faced between his career as a ‘pornographer’ — another point of discussion in the film, the art of Playboy Magazine — and his support of a number of feminist issues. It looks like an interesting biopic/historical social-political piece that boasts a pretty impressive list of A-List interview subjects: George Lucas, Gene Simmons, Jim Brown (A-list in my books), Bill Maher, James Caan, Mike Wallace, and Jesse Jackson among others.

Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist and Rebel hits theatres July 30th (limited release).
