I am the subject of a documentary film that has recently been entered into the Trinity Film Festival. The producer has not contacted once about this and I have only heard about it from other sources. I feel as if I deserve recognition, however, that time has passed and now I'm simply wondering what legal rights I have in this issue. Without my consent, can he legally show this film (behind my back, mind you). Do I have legal standing to completely terminate the film? The story depicted is completely my own, true events from my life. The film was first shown at my school's film festival and has now taken on a life of its own. I feel exploited by the producer and I want to make a smart approach with the stand that I take.
If you know my identity, I request your discretion in this matter until it is resolved.
