The Fight takes an engaging look at some of the people working on the front lines for the ACLU — and makes a passionate case for the legal battles they wage.
Immediately following THE FIGHT there will be a pre-recorded discussion between Kerry Washington and the four ACLU lawyers featured in the film (Brigitte Amiri, Lee Gelernt, Dale Ho, and Chase Strangio). This conversation is exclusive to virtual cinema. Additionally, patrons will have free access to a live Q&A on Sun. 8/2 with the filmmakers and lawyers, moderated by Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post.
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 roller coaster 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.
“[An] engrossing and ultimately inspiring examination of ideals in action.” Washington Post
“The Fight is a fantastic documentary highlighting the real heroes out there: the overworked attorneys of the ACLU.” Film Threat
