13th Green Mountain Film Festival: <i>William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe</i> Montpelier Vermont

Filmmakers Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler explore the life of their father, the late radical civil rights lawyer. In the 1960s and 1970s, Kunstler fought for civil rights with Martin Luther King Jr. and represented the famed "Chicago 8" activists who were charged with conspiracy after the 1968 Democratic convention. When the inmates took over Attica prison or when the American Indian Movement stood up to the federal government at Wounded Knee, they asked Kunstler to be their lawyer. But later, when the daughters were growing up, Kunstler represented some of the most reviled members of society, including alleged rapists and assassins. This powerful film not only recounts the historic causes that Kunstler fought for, it also reveals a man that even his own daughters did not always understand. Post-film events: Emily Kunstler will discuss the film after both showings. Sponsored by Vermont Compost Company. Community Partners: Peace and Justice Center, American Civil Liberties Union of Vermont. 95 minutes.
