THE CASE AGAINST 8
Directed by Ben Cotner and Ryan White; HBO, 2014; Distributed in Australia by Leapfrog Films — https://leapfrogfilms.com.au/movie/case-8/
The Case Against 8 documents the inspiring story of a lawsuit challenging Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment in California that had the effect of banning same-sex marriage in the state.
Spanning five years, the HBO documentary directed and produced by Ben Cotner and Ryan White follows the case from its inception to trial, through various appeals and ultimately, to a winning verdict in the US Supreme Court. It largely focuses on the four plaintiffs and their legal team, who ultimately succeed in legalising same-sex marriage in California.
