Recommending the Documentary "William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe"

From: Lee

Everyone liked the documentary, so we thought we would share the feedback and recommend you see the film. Here is the feedback:

?I think it's a very well made film with and interesting perspective on some key social issues.?

?Thanks for arranging the Movie. It was really interesting. Quite enjoyed it?

?Absolutely stunning and inspirational film and much needed intro about a vital part of the recent American history. William Kunstler puts everything in the US context what theologian Walter Brueggemann writes about. This film compels to hope again. Thanks to Lee for organizing. I enjoyed the conversations and the dinner. Awesome people.?

I thought it was an intriguing look at a life dedicated to fighting for justice for those typically oppressed by the system. William Kuntsler's two daughters made the documentary, in part to reflect upon a father that they did not always understand while growing up. The personal, inside view of the man's dedication, as well as some of his flaws, made it that much more enjoyable.

The film will run at least through Thursday, Nov. 26 at the Cinema Village, 22 E.12th Street b/t 5th Ave. and University Place. Here are the original links from the meeting notice:

William Kunstler represented civil rights activists and other protesters throughout his career as well as the 5 kids convicted for the Central Park jogger rape. (If you didn't follow the case closely, you'll be surprised by how this turned out). The documentary looks fascinating and we can recommend watching the segment on Democracy Now for a good preview to see if you want to go.

Enjoy and all the best for the Thanksgiving Holiday. We hope to see you at the next Prague Spring meeting:
