USA, California: The Case Against 8 Trailer Released

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

Prop 8 OverThe new trailer for the Case Against 8 has been released.

Dot 429 reports:

“The Case Against 8” takes an inside look at the groundbreaking Supreme Court case that overturned Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage. Five years in the making, with exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the powerhouse legal team of Ted Olson and David Boies, who previously faced off as opposing counsel in Bush v. Gore, along with the four plaintiffs in the suit, the film provides a definitive account of the battle that effectively ended marriage discrimination in California.

“Mormon Proposition” Movie Trailer Released

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

I’m fascinated by the growing trend of documentaries that take a look at recent history. I got a chance to see Alex Gibney’s Casino Jack a few days ago, finally watched Outrage last week, and in checking out the trailer for 8: The Mormon Proposition, I have to say that I’m loving the forced-transparency that is coming with our media-overloaded lives. Of course, there’s a slant to all of these documentaries, but they are Zinn-like in their quality of telling a different side to the story.

The Mormon Proposition takes a look at the infusion of money from the Mormon Church in Utah during the push to get Prop 8, a proposition which strictly defined marriage, passed and added on to the California Constitution. This, of course, came as a direct response to gay marriage being legalized in the state.
