The Trials of Alan Dershowitz

Tuesday, March 5, 2024

DOC NYC FESTIVAL ENCORE. Alan Dershowitz is a fierce criminal defense attorney known for representing infamous clients like Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein, and whose unwavering defense of constitutional rights and civil liberties is both admirable and divisive. The film explores his notable victories and lesser-known losses, as well as his court battles with one of Epstein’s victims, who had accused him of sexual misconduct. Narrated by Dershowitz with insights from Gloria Allred, Mike Tyson, and Megan Kelly, this engaging documentary unveils a fresh perspective on the provocative and controversial lawyer.

The screening will be followed by an on-stage conversation with filmmaker John Curtin.
