This important documentary is almost like a crash course in activism for the LGBT community in 2017 Israel. Today, the movement for marriage equality is hailed as one of the most influential social endeavors, boasting what is perceived to be the best civil rights lobbying campaign in contemporary history.
In Eddie Rosenstein’s The Freedom to Marry, the people behind this historic movement are discovered. It is a fascinating journey that accompanies Evan Wolfson and Mary Bonauto, the chief architects of this movement, and their colleagues, from the early days of the struggle and up to the stairs leading to the Supreme Court for the final stage.
A special, important guest at the screening will be attorney and social activist Evan Wolfson.
