SYDNEY-based Queer Screen will host a special screening of award-winning documentary The Case Against 8 tonight, which will also feature a Q&A with director Ryan White.
A runaway hit on the LGBTI film festival circuit around the world, White’s documentary follows the battle for marriage equality from the eyes of two families who file a lawsuit against California’s infamous Proposition 8.
The now-famous landmark decision that follows has had incredible impact, and a domino effect, on the marriage equality movement in the US.
The Case Against 8 was the winner of the US documentary directing award at Sundance and the Audience Award at SXSW.
Along with a Q&A with White, Sydney state independent MP Alex Greenwich will also introduce the documentary and discuss Australian marriage equality.
WHEN: 7pm; Wednesday, August 20
WHERE: Event Cinemas George Street, Sydney
