The Freedom To Marry

( USA / 2016 )
THE FREEDOM TO MARRY is the untold story of the most successful - and perhaps most inspiring - civil rights movement of our time. This is a riveting ride alongside Evan Wolfson, the man known as architect of the movement, and his team as they wage a decades-long battle all the way to the United States Supreme Court, providing fresh perspective on the movement's history along the way. This is both a primer for social change and a behind-the-scenes look at how regular people can actually make a difference.
