Fiercely intelligent and principled, Sir Harold Evans, long-time editor of the Sunday Times, was a man determined to use the power of journalism to make a real difference in the world. Attacking the Devil delves into one of Evans’ most impactful missions—a campaign to gain justice for the horribly damaged child victims of thalidomide. He took on the drug’s manufacturer, who had been attempting to get the victims to settle for a fraction of the compensation they deserved. Covering many of Evans’ investigations and campaigns, the film also hears from those both involved in the stories and who continue to hold pivotal roles in modern day journalism. From politician and activist Ralph Nader to Nick Davies, who broke the recent phone hacking scandal, to Alan Rusbridger, the Guardian’s most recent editor, the film demonstrates how fierce resolve and determination can bring truth to power.
