The HBO Original documentary film “No Accident” premieres on October 10 and is directed by Emmy(R) Award-winning filmmaker Kristi Jacobson. This powerful documentary delves into the aftermath of the 2017 white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, known as the “Unite the Right” rally. Attorneys Roberta “Robbie” Kaplan and Karen Dunn filed a civil lawsuit on behalf of nine plaintiffs who were peacefully counter-protesting the rally but suffered physical and emotional injuries. The documentary explores the lawsuit’s claims that the rally was a well-planned conspiracy to incite racially motivated violence and advance an anti-Semitic, race-war agenda. “No Accident” provides intimate access to the lawyers, their dedicated team, and six of the courageous plaintiffs, chronicling the dramatic and shocking twists during the three-year-long civil rights trial. As co-counsels Kaplan and Dunn go head-to-head against alt-right and white supremacist leaders, including Richard Spencer and Christopher Cantwell, who represent themselves at trial, the plaintiffs confront their attackers on the witness stand during cross-examinations. The film reveals the vitriolic online language and communications that led to the death of Heather Heyer and the lasting trauma of those present on August 12, 2017. Through chilling testimony from the trial, it exposes a broad network of conspirators and the challenges of holding these leaders and organizations accountable for their actions.
