Screening of Question One with director Q&A following

Director Joe Fox's words suffice:

*************

Our film chronicles, in War Room fashion, the behind the scenes workings on BOTH sides of the recent same-sex marriage referendum that took place in Maine.

For three months, we spent the duration of the campaign embedded in war rooms and strategy sessions as we captured the private thoughts, insights, fears, and conflicts expressed by key leaders as they crafted and created their messages and strategies.

We shadowed the foot soldiers -- the volunteers of the campaign -- as they knocked on countless doors, made endless phone calls and through deeply personal and revealing interviews, bared their souls of hope and heartache as they fought to the finish for an issue framed and anchored in passion and purpose, dignity and civil rights, morality and beliefs.

As a gay man, I went behind "enemy" lines, so to speak, without ever disclosing my identity.

For three months, I lived in a state of fear as I struggled to keep my gay identity a secret.

In the face-to-face interviews, I had to listen to and absorb words and feelings and rage against folks (like me) and not just flinch, but find a way of connecting to those who were opposed to gay marriage in order to tell their stories with honesty, balance, and with a sense of nuance.

There is a Q&A with Mr. Fox immediately following the screening.  If we're thus inclined we can head to a nearby cafe to continue the discussion.
