THE IRISH director of an Oscar nominated film about the murder of James Bulger has said he won't withdraw it from the competition.
In a statement regarding the film and explaining why he did not approach Denise and her husband first, director Lambe said: "The film was never meant to bring any further anguish to the family of James Bulger".
The short, from Vincent Lambe and Darren Mahon, is based on the 1993 case of James Bulger, Fergus' 2-year-old child from Kirkby, Merseyside in the United Kingdom who was abducted, tortured, and killed by two young boys.
"As we went straight into the New Year, we were hit with it was shortlisted for an Oscar and that's when reality hit".
"I think it shouldn't get the Oscar and if [Vincent Lambe] feels that strong about hurting the family then I think he should pull it himself".
In a case that shocked the country, Jon Venables and his friend Robert Thompson, who were both aged 10 at the time, abducted Bulger, 2, from a shopping centre in Liverpool, northern England.
They were arrested soon after and convicted following a 17-day trial at Preston Crown Court and ordered to be detained at Her Majesty's pleasure, the normal substitute sentence for life imprisonment when the offender is a juvenile.
"Detainment" used transcripts of interviews with the two boys to recreate the horrific events on-screen.
"Whilst it is a painfully hard case to understand, I believe we have a responsibility to try and make sense of what happened".

"I can not thank everyone enough for all their support about getting the Oscars to revoke the shortlist nomination", she said.
"He (Lambe) was 12 years old when it happened".
"If you go on social media, that's all he's talking about, trying to get himself out there, putting himself forward for the Oscar". She wants protections in place for films linked to true stories which writers and directors may use for artistic purposes. "With hindsight, I am sorry I did not make Mrs. Fergus aware of the film".
"Seeing the images of actors playing James, it's just horrendous", said mother Fergus.
She said she was "angry and upset" that her concerns had been ignored.
"No, I wouldn't have agreed with the way he's done it but I would have told him to do it a different way". Not now. It's too late because he's gone ahead and done it.
The controversial film sparked a Change.org petition, to stop its screening and have it removed from the Oscars' nominations shortlist, which earned over 95,000 signatures in support.
The short film is based on police records and interviews with the children after James' mutilated body was found on a railway line two days after his murder.
