You and a guest are invited to an Emory-exclusive private screening and post-film discussion of DENIAL.
Deborah Lipstadt, Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies, is a leading example of the excellent College faculty whose research and teaching change the world. Enjoy this unique opportunity to join with other Emory College alumni for exclusive access and an inside look into the real-life story behind the film.
Based on the acclaimed book Denial: Holocaust History on Trial, the film recounts Emory College of Arts and Sciences’ own Deborah Lipstadt’s (Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall) who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, in cases of libel, the burden of proof is on the defendant, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team, led by Richard Rampton (Academy Award® nominee Tom Wilkinson), to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. DENIAL is directed by Emmy Award® winner Mick Jackson (“Temple Grandin”) and adapted for the screen by BAFTA and Academy Award® nominated writer David Hare ("The Reader"). Producers are Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff.
