Brett Kavanaugh Sexual Assault Investigation Doc ‘Justice’ From Doug Liman to Premiere at Sundance

A new documentary about the explosive sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh will debut at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival. Veteran feature director Doug Liman is directing, marking his documentary debut.

“It’s a film that focuses on the allegations against Brett Kavanaugh and the investigation that ensured,” said Sundance director of programing Kim Yutani.

Justice Kavanaugh was nominated to the Supreme Court by former President Donald Trump in 2018. In the subsequent months of his vetting process, multiple women came forward and accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault, including Christine Blassey Ford. 

Ford would come to deliver a memorable and harrowing testimony about the alleged assault before a senate judiciary committee, an event that would also provide unforgettable images of a furious and blistering Kavanaugh defending his innocence. The senate voted 50–48 to confirm him later in 2018. In 2019, the New York Times released an investigative report which furthered accounts from another Kavanaugh accuser, Deborah Ramirez. While she did not testify before the judiciary committee, she previously stated that Kavanugh assaulted her when both were undergrads at Yale. 

Liman announced last spring that he would explore another nonfiction topic, traveling to Ukraine to document the country’s ongoing war with Russia. His narrative credits include “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” “American Made,” “Edge of Tomorrow,” “The Bourne Identity” and “Swingers.”

The news was announced during an opening press conference in Park City, featuring Sundance leadership including CEO Joana Vicente, director of programing Yutani, senior programmer and strategic initiatives director John Nein, and incoming festival director Eugene Hernandez.
