It wouldn’t be a Sundance Film Festival without a final film up our sleeve! Just now, we unveiled in our 2023 slate: Doug Liman’s Justice.
In a little over 24 hours from now (January 20 at 8:30 p.m. MT), we will be premiering Liman’s first documentary —produced by Amy Herdy and Executive Produced by Liz Garbus and Dan Cogan — about the allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
“It shouldn’t be this hard to have an open and honest conversation about whether or not a Justice on the Supreme Court assaulted numerous women as a young man,” says Liman about the surprise premiere. “Thanks to this fantastic investigative team and the brave souls who trusted us with their stories, Justice picks up where the FBI investigation into Brett Kavanaugh fell woefully short. The film examines our judicial process and the institutions behind it, highlighting bureaucratic missteps, and political powergrabs that continue to have an outsized impact on our nation today. Sundance gave me and countless other independent filmmakers our big breaks, so it’s especially meaningful for me to return with my first documentary.”
Kim Yutani, Festival Director of Programming, echoed the importance of this conversation: “We were fortunate to see Justice later in the programming process and were moved by its resolve to raise questions and provoke dialogue. Documentaries have always been a crucial aspect of the essence of Sundance and reflect the influential power of storytelling. We are honored to amplify this impactful work that dares to challenge through the addition of Doug Liman’s film.”
Justice will only be screened once publicly, in person, tomorrow. Tickets are now on sale for the exclusive premiere and Q&A. You won’t want to miss out.
