DENIAL @Peace Center of Delaware County Free First-Friday Film Series. See it!

July 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Denial

(2016.  110 minutes.  British-American Historical Drama.  Rated PG-13 for adult themes and brief, strong language.  Directed by Mick Jackson.  Screenplay by David Hare based on the book Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory by Deborah Lipstadt.  Stars Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson, and Timothy Spall.)

In 1996, the international lecturer and Nazi Holocaust denier, David Irving, sued historian Deborah Lipstadt in the British courts for calling him a “falsifier of history” in her book Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory.

Irving believed he had a right, without being held accountable, for his hateful falsehoods which denied the historical fact of the Holocaust and Nazi horror.

“Solidly crafted”, writes Wenlei Ma, film reviewer for News.com.au,DENIAL is anchored by wonderful performances from Rachel Weisz and Tom Wilkinson. It’s also shockingly relevant to the odd place we find ourselves today.”

DENIAL presents a poignant and clear headed argument for the undeniable truth that we so terribly need today.

Doors open at 6:30p.m. for light refreshments. For more information and directions, visit www.delcopeacecenter.org or call 484-574-1148.  After screening discussion for those wishing to stay.
