Norman Finkelstein has a mission – to speak the truth. And the truth, as he sees it, is inflammatory to his fellow Jews, including arch enemy and distinguished Harvard scholar Alan Dershowitz.

The son of concentration camp survivors, Finkelstein was heavily influenced by his mother, who became an impassioned pacifist. Finkelstein has devoted his energetic academic career to publishing and speaking out against Israel, and denouncing the invocation of the Holocaust to justify displacement and oppression of Palestinians.

– USA, 84min. Director Nicolas Rossier.


Following the screening, there will be a discussion and Q&A session with Professor Avi Shlaim, who features in the film. Professor Shlaim is a Fellow of St Antony’s College and a Professor of International Relations at the University of Oxford. He is a frequent contributor to the newspapers and commentator on radio and television on Middle Eastern affairs, and has authored many books including The Iron Wall: Israel and the Arab World.

The evening will be hosted by broadcaster and comedian, Jeremy Hardy, who featured in the critically-acclaimed documentary Jeremy Hardy v The Israeli Army and is a regular panelist on Radio 4’s News Quiz.
