William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe
Sarah and Emily Kunstler, 2009, 90 min


William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe examines the life of this radical attorney from a surprising angle. Kunstler's two daughters from his second marriage grew up lionizing a man already famous for his historic civil rights and anti-war cases. Then, in their teens, they began to be disillusioned by a stubborn man who continued representing some of the most reviled defendants in America — this time accused rapists and terrorists. In this intimate biography, Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler seek to recover the real story of what made their late father one of the most beloved, and hated, lawyers in America. Winner of the L'Oreal Paris Women of Worth Vision Award, 2009 Sundance Film Festival. A co-production of ITVS.

Panel discussion with attorneys Stu Ball & Joel Myrom, moderated by King Downing of the Black Panther Party Commemoration Committee.
