Sundance Film Festival: The Case Against 8 + Q&A
This is the legendary Sundance, so hello tip-top independent film
This documentary follows what happened when California passed Prop 8, denying certain rights of same-sex couples to marry. Lead attorneys in the trial to overturn this decision saw an unlikely pairing of Ted Olson (totally conservative) and David Boies (really liberal). When the case was taken to Supreme Court, they found themselves in the centre of a media storm – and the filmmakers were there to capture history in the making. Stick around after for a Q&A with the film's directors. Best available seating allocated on arrival. Browse YPlan for more Sundance events throughout the weekend.
"Lucid, balanced and relentlessly informative. Spellbinding stuff."
