Showing of the movie "Denial"
Based on the acclaimed book “Denial: Holocaust History on Trial,” Denial recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt's 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, 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. Producers are Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff. This event is free and open to the public. Please contact Bea at email@example.com or 330.746.3250, ext. 114 to register.
