William Kinstler: Disturbing the Universe
The ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties and the San Diego Public Library, in partnership with Media Arts Center San Diego and PBS’ Point-of-View (POV) series, present a preview film screening of
Monday, June 7, 6:30 pm
3rd floor auditorium of the Central Library,
820 E Street, downtown San Diego.
Directed by Emily and Sarah Kunstler, the film examines the life of this radical attorney from a surprising angle. The filmmakers, Kunstler’s two daughters, grew up lionizing a man already famous for his historic civil rights and anti-war cases. Then, in their teens, they began to be disillusioned by a stubborn man who continued representing some of the most reviled defendants in America — this time accused rapists and terrorists. In this intimate biography, the filmmakers seek to recover the real story of what made their late father one of the most beloved, and hated, lawyers in America.
