Our fall Real to Reel Series kicks off with the award-winning documentary, “Freedom to Marry” presented in partnership with the ACLU of Michigan.
The film tells the story of Evan Wolfson, the architect of same-sex marriage, and his colleagues who led a decades-long battle to win rights for LGBT people, culminating dramatically at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Winner of “Best Documentary” at the Savannah Film Festival, “Freedom to Marry”, directed by Eddie Rosenstein, is the surprising story of the most successful – and perhaps most inspiring – civil rights movement of our time.
Last year this event was such a success , we had to offer it again!
