Film Synopsis: The Case Against 8

Director: Ben Cotner & Ryan White | Countries of production: United States | Year: 2013 | Length: 109 min
Language: English with English subtitles | Age: 15+ years

The Case Against 8 charts the deeply moving stories of two gay couples in their quest to take on a system stacked against them.

In 2008, Californians passed Proposition 8, a measure that repealed the right of same-sex couples to marry. In its wake, two of American politics’ heavyweight legal foes – Bush and Gore’s respective councils Ted Olson and David Boies – unite their different ideologies to the same end: to overturn the amendment.

Shot over five years, with unparalleled access to the key players in the controversy, this Sundance award-winning doc brings vividly to life one of the most significant civil rights battles in recent decades.
