Denial: In Defence of Truth

Denial: In Defence of Truth

On April 11 2000 judgment was delivered in the Irving v Lipstadt case. Historian and author Deborah Lipstadt, represented by Mishcon de Reya lawyers Anthony Julius and James Libson, had won. The events of that trial now form the basis of a film written by Sir David Hare. Denial, starring Rachel Weisz and Tom Wilkinson, goes on general release today – Holocaust Memorial Day.   

To mark the release of the film, we wanted to look into how a trial that took place in 2000 has relevance today. Working with Quite Frankly Productions and Alex Krasodomski-Jones of Demos, we have made a short film exploring truth, post-truth and denial in 2017. 

Watch the film here.
