Sundance Film Festival Announces JUSTICE World Premiere
Doug Liman Directed and Amy Herdy Produced, Liz Garbus and Dan Cogan Executive Produced Documentary to Debut in Special Screenings Section
[PARK CITY, UTAH] This week the nonprofit Sundance Institute announced Justice will have its world premiere at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival in the Special Screenings section. The film is directed by Doug Liman and produced by Amy Herdy, with Story Syndicate’s Liz Garbus and Dan Cogan executive producing. The news of the project and its addition to the lineup is being revealed for the first time ahead of its premiere screening on January 20 at 8:30 p.m. MT. In director Doug Liman’s first documentary feature, Justice presents never-before-seen evidence and key interviews with those closely involved in the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh. Tickets for the in-person only premiere of Justice are on sale now.
The 2023 Festival kicked off Thursday and continues through January 29 in person in Park City, Salt Lake City, and the Sundance Resort, along with a selection of films available online across the country January 24–29, 2023. Tickets for the Festival are on sale now at festival.sundance.org/tickets.
“We were fortunate to see Justice later in the programming process and were moved by its resolve to raise questions and provoke dialogue,” said Kim Yutani, Sundance Film Festival Director of Programming. “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.”
“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,” adds Director Doug Liman. “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 power-grabs that continue to have an out-sized 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.”
Justice joins the previously announced 2023 Festival slate making the total 111 feature-length films representing 28 countries. The Sundance Film Festival is an artist program of the Sundance Institute. Proceeds earned through Festival ticket sales go to uplifting and developing emerging artists on a year-round basis through focused labs, direct grants, fellowships, residencies, and more.
