The Freedom to Marry
Documentary directed by Eddie Rosenstein (USA, 2016, 86 min.). The Freedom to Marry tells the riveting story of how same-sex marriage became law of the land. The film follows Evan Wolfson, the architect the movement, civil rights attorney Mary Bonauto and their key colleagues on this decades long battle, culminating in a dramatic fight at the United States Supreme Court. More than the saga of one movement’s history, this is an inspiring tale of how activists can effectively change the minds and laws of the nation. Co-presented with Wicked Queer: The Boston LGBT Film Festival and the Boston Jewish Film Festival.
“Thoroughly moving and inspiring.” – Peter Keough, The Boston Globe
