Starting on July 31, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater offers virtual cinema access to “The Fight,” an intriguing documentary that follows a dedicated team of heroic ACLU lawyers in an electrifying battle over abortion rights, immigrant rights, LGBTQ rights and voting rights.
Only days after the 2017 inauguration of Donald Trump, furious Americans gathered at airports across the country in protest of the Muslim ban. But it was the efforts of the American Civil Liberties Union waging the fight in federal court that turned the tide, staying Trump’s executive order on grounds of unconstitutionality.
Immediately following the film, there will be a pre-recorded discussion between Kerry Washington and the four ACLU lawyers featured in the film (Brigitte Amiri, Lee Gelernt, Dale Ho, and Chase Strangio). This conversation is exclusive to virtual cinema and in-theater engagements. Additionally, patrons will have free access to a live Q&A on Sun., Aug 2 with the filmmakers and lawyers, moderated by Ann Hornaday of the “Washington Post.” This also will be archived and available beyond Aug 2.
