Afternoon at the Movies: Denial

Description

We invite you to the first of four in our series of Sunday Afternoon at the Movies featuring the film Denial . Based on the acclaimed book Denial: Holocaust History on Trial, Denial recounts Deborah E. 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. Viewing will be followed by a discussion. Coffee, tea and snacks will be served.

Kindly RSVP to Carole Wolfner at 516-349-7616 for a reserved seat. Suggested donation: $2 per person.
