"The Case Against 8" takes a riveting, inside look at the groundbreaking Supreme Court case that overturned Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage. Five years in the making, with exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the powerhouse legal team of Ted Olson and David Boies, who previously faced off as opposing counsel in Bush v. Gore, along with the four plaintiffs in the suit, the film provides a definitive account of the battle that effectively ended marriage discrimination in California. Directed by Ben Cotner and Ryan White. Winner of the 2014 SXSW Audience Award and Sundance Film Festival Best Directing Award.
