“The Case Against 8” takes an inside look at the groundbreaking Supreme Court case that overturned Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage. Five years in the making, the film chronicles the struggle that helped pave the way for marriage equality battles nationwide, with behind-the-scenes access to the two California couples seeking the right to marry and the legal team of conservative Ted Olson and liberal David Boies. “The Case Against 8” provides a definite account of the battle that effectively ended marriage discrimination in California and took the issue of marriage equality all the way to the Supreme Court.

The movie has won a directing award at the Sundance Film Festival, and several other awards at festivals like SXSW, Ashland, Berkshire, Hot Docs and many more.


The movie screens in Estonia in the American Film Showcase program of the U.S. Embassy in Estonia.
