Film Society of Lincoln Center to Host Special Screening of ‘The Case Against 8’

Film Society of Lincoln Center to Host Special Screening of 'The Case Against 8'

The Film Society of Lincoln Center announced today that they will be holding a special advance screening of HBO Documentary Films’ award-winning The Case Against 8 on Thursday, May 29 at 7PM at the Walter Reade Theater (165 West 65th Street). The screening will be immediately followed by a conversation with directors Ben Cotner and Ryan White, as well as plaintiffs Kris Perry and Sandy Stier and Paul Katami and David Zorrillo. 

A big winner at both Sundance and SXSW, the film was shot over five years, offering an incredible inside look at the legal battle behind overturning Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in California back in 2008. It’s an inspiring journey that Cotner and White (along with editor Kate Amend) tightly put together into a very powerful film about a legal battle that will and has dramatically changed the legal rights situation for gay and lesbian couples in the US.

All tickets are $20 and are available for purchase now at Filmlinc.com. Watch the trailer below, and then try not to buy a ticket:
