One powerful film.
Montreal’s Holocaust Memorial Centre in Cote des Neiges invites the public to attend a free film screening of the 2016 British-American historical drama, Denial.
Directed by Mick Jackson and starring Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Spall, and Andrew Scott, Denial chronicles the trial, Irving v Penguin Books Ltd, in which Holocaust denier David Irving sued Holocaust scholar, Deborah Lipstadt, for libel.
The case received notable attention in the press throughout the late 1990’s, and this film dramatizes the events surrounding the trial, from Irving’s initial lawsuit to the final verdict.
A hugely important case in history, the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre will first screen the film before inviting Robert Jan van Pelt, a witness to the trial and Holocaust architecture expert, to lead a discussion.
The event will take place on January 24th from 7pm until 9pm. Guests are asked to reserve their tickets in advance here.
When: January 24, 7-9pm
Where: 5151 Chemin de la Côte-Sainte-Catherine
