Description

Cinema Eye Nominees: Audience picks for the best non-fiction feature films from the past year.

Over 18,000 same-sex couples married in 2008 after a long and fiery fight for the freedom to marry in California. Six months later, Proposition 8 won the popular vote and a ban on same-sex marriage was put into law. Against all odds, the American Foundation for Equal Rights, the plaintiffs—two likable and committed couples who put their lives on the line for this historic hearing—and lawyers Ted Olson and David Boies (from opposing sides of Bush v. Gore), band together to take the case all the way to the Supreme Court. Winner of the Directing Award for US Documentary at the Sundance Film Festival, The Case Against 8 investigates the inner workings of this emotionally charged fight for equality under the law. As plaintiff Paul reflects, “Prop 8 hurt, it hurts to this day, but it emboldened a movement like I’ve never seen.” Kathleen Mullen, Hot Docs
