THE FIGHT

Friday, Jul 31 (All day) to Thursday, Aug 20 (All day)

QUARANTINE CINEMA OFFERING

OPENS FRIDAY, JULY 31

 

 

THE FIGHT is an inspiring, emotional insider look at how these important battles are fought and the legal gladiators on the front lines fighting them. Directors Elyse Steinberg, Josh Kriegman, and Eli Despres capture the rollercoaster ride of the thrill and defeat in these deeply human battles. When a mother is separated from her child, a soldier is threatened to lose his career, a young woman’s right to choose is imperiled at the pleasure of a government official, and the ability to exercise our basic right to vote is threatened, the consequences can be devastating to us and to future generations. THE FIGHT celebrates the unsung heroes who fiercely work to protect our freedoms.

There’s a live Q&A set for Sunday, August 2 at 4:00pm PT. The conversation will feature the filmmakers and the ACLU lawyers featured in the film, in conversation with Ann Hornaday, chief film critic at The Washington Post. You will be able to access the live Q&A through the same link you purchased the film and it will be archived for those who miss the livestream; alternately, they can click through to this link. The video will become active at 7:00pm ET / 4:00pm PT.

In addition, there’s a pre-recorded discussion immediately following the film featuring Kerry Washington and the five ACLU lawyers featured in the film (Brigitte Amiri, Lee Gelernt, Dale Ho, Joshua Block, and Chase Strangio). This conversation is exclusive to virtual cinema and in-theater engagements.

Your audience will be able to access the live Q&A through the same link they purchased the film and it will be archived for those who miss the livestream; alternately, you can click through to this link. The video will become active at 4:00pm PT.
