Denial is the next film in the Cinefest 2017 Winter Program series.

Rachel Weisz and Timothy Spall star in this courtroom drama about a real-life legal battle that cut to the heart of the 20th century: the showdown between historian Deborah Lipstadt and Holocaust denier David Irving.

Once a well-regarded military historian, Irving (Spall) courted controversy when he claimed the Holocaust was a hoax. Lipstadt (Weisz) labelled him a denier in her 1993 book leading him to sue her for libel. However, because the burden of proof in British libel law lies with accused rather than the accuser, it fell to Lipstadt and her legal team to demonstrate that one of the defining events of the century did actually happen.

Denial is an especially timely and gripping reminder that history should never be taken for granted.
