The disappearance of Shere Hite had its world premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
As executive producer and voice actor for Shere Hite on the documentary, dakota johnson, 33, was among the cast and crew who led their support on Thursday, which began with a red carpet walk.
The film focuses on the renowned sexologist and author of The Hite Report, the 1976 mega-bestseller that “liberated the female orgasm by exposing the most private experiences of thousands of anonymous survey-takers,” according to the film meeting.

Johnson opted to keep it casual-cool in the fashion department, dressed in pleated and baggy blue jeans which she tucked into a pair of black boots.
Her shiny boots actually came just past mid-calf.
The Austin, Texas native also wore a black long-sleeved top that she tucked into blue jeans, which she held in place with the help of her BKE Basic CG buckle belt.
As temperatures fluctuated between single digits and a high of 22 degrees Fahrenheit, the actress covered up in a black patterned jacket with white trim along the shoulders.

TeaTime Pictures Team: Johnson serves as the voice of Shere Hite and executive producer on the documentary along with her producing partner at TeaTime Pictures, Ro Donnelly
At some point during the photo fest, Johnson caught up with her producing partner at TeaTime Pictures, Ro Donnelly, who showed off her fashion sense in a shirt and pants combo with a blue denim pattern.
The former Netflix head of development also wore a furry burgundy beanie over her long dark locks that flowed well past her shoulders.
Just moments later, Johnson was joined on the red carpet by the documentary’s director, Nicole Newnham.
The Oscar-nominated director of Crip Camp (2020) struck a few poses in black leather pants and matching boots and a jumper over a white shirt that might sag an inch.

“The opportunity to come on board not only to be the voice, but to support and amplify the amazing work and message of the amazing Shere Hite was a no-brainer,” Johnson said in a statement about the film.
She added, “We couldn’t think of a better time to tell her story.”
Hite, who died in 2020 at the age of 77, spent the final decades of her life in Europe after facing relentless attacks from US conservatives who outraged her work that “challenged and opened up on limiting notions of sex a dialogue in popular culture around women’s pleasure.’
During this period, after each subsequent bestseller, Hite also engaged in explicit debates about sexuality, while at the same time suffering the backlash her controversial findings evoked.

Dakota’s outing comes after she made a joke about the Armie Hammer cannibalism scandal while speaking at a dinner kicking off the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
The actress spoke at the A Taste of Sundance Dinner at The Basin Recreation Fieldhouse and presented the Luca Guadagnino Sundance Institute International Icon Award after working with him on films such as A Bigger Splash and Suspiria.
Johnson joked that the acclaimed director tried to cast her as Peach in the acclaimed film Call Me by Your Name.
In the film, the character played by Timothee Chalamet performed a sex act on a peach, after which Hammer’s character ate it.
“Luca had asked me to play the part of the peach but our schedules were at odds – thank goodness because then I would have been just another woman trying to eat Armie Hammer!”
