A late addition to the 2023 Sundance Film Festival lineup will be Doug Liman’s documentary debut, Justice, which dives into the 2018 hearings and government investigation into now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Amy Herdy (On the Record, The Hunting Ground) produced the doc, with Story Syndicate’s Liz Garbus and Dan Cogan executive producing.
“We always have something up our sleeve,” said Sundance head programmer Kim Yutani, when announcing the feature, which she said will inspire a lot of conversation.
“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,” said Liman in a statement. “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.”
Liman added: “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.”
Justice will have its world premiere Friday, Jan. 20, in Park City.
