Free Screening: The Case Against 8

LACMA

5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

7:30pm

2014, 112 min, color, DCP 

Includes a conversation with directors Ben Cotner and Ryan White, editor Kate Amend and subjects Rob Reiner, Paul Katami, and Jeff Zarrillo

The legal and public conflagration over California’s Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriage in the state, is following in a particularly stimulating and close manner in the documentary The Case Against 8, which played in competition in this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Directors Ben Cotner and Ryan White, who also produced the film, use uncanny tactics to give viewers a fascinating and distinctive stake in the conflict—an effort to overturn the conventional attitudes toward marriage by examining its very cultural definition—by showing the work put in by a controversial supporter of same-sex unions: attorney Theodore Olsen, best known for his controversial (and successful) defense of George W. Bush in the Supreme Court over the 2000 presidential election. The Case Against 8 won Sundance’s Directing Documentary Prize and also captured the Audience Award at the SXSW Film Festival this year.
