iW NEWS | here! Takes "Saving Marriage" Worldwide; Targets California's Prop 8

Worldwide rights to John Henning and Mike Roth‘s doc “Saving Marriage” have been acquired by here! Films, the theatrical distribution and worldwide sales division of here! Networks. Partner Regent Releasing has pushed up the release date of “Saving Marriage” to release in select cities beginning October 10 in an effort to defeat Proposition 8 in California and take advantage of upcoming elections on November 4th. The film chronicles the two-years after the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled gay marriage legal in November of 2003. Public outcry pushed conservative legislators to approve a constitutional amendment that would override the decision and take marriage away from the gay and lesbian couples. The film archives the fight as the gay community spurs into action by an issue that could change their lives. [Brian Brooks]
