American Foundation for Equal Rights

The Case Against 8

“The Case Against 8” is a behind-the-scenes look at the AFER’s federal court challenge for marriage equality. Produced independently from the foundation, AFER gave exclusive access to directors Ben Cotner, Ryan White and their film crew over the  course of five years. It offers unprecedented insight into our justice system and the often mysterious process of taking a case to the Supreme Court.

The film is an official 2014 Sundance Film Festival selection and premieres on HBO on June 23.
