Seven days after President Trump’s inauguration, the country’s airports and courthouses were clogged with protesters fighting to protect immigrants facing deportation due to the new administration’s “Muslim ban” policy. It was to be the opening salvo of a relentless attack on civil liberties—and a tsunami of lawsuits waged against the Trump administration.
THE FIGHT is an inspiring, emotional insider look at how these important battles are fought and the legal gladiators on the front lines fighting them. Directors Elyse Steinberg, Josh Kriegman, and Eli Despres (WEINER) capture the rollercoaster ride of the thrill and defeat in these deeply human battles. When a mother is separated from her child, a soldier is threatened with losing his career, a young woman’s right to choose is imperiled at the pleasure of a government official, and the ability to exercise our basic right to vote is threatened, the consequences can be devastating to us and to future generations. THE FIGHT celebrates the unsung heroes who fiercely work to protect our freedoms. (Synopsis from the Sundance Film Festival)
“...Frankly, it’s nice to see David beating Goliath on the big screen. Right off the bat, the directors—whose Sundance grand jury prize-winning doc WEINER dug into the details around disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner's demise—make the wise choice to focus on four of the most pivotal cases and the five lawyers litigating them.” —Beandrea July, Hollywood Reporter “...A fantastic documentary highlighting the real heroes out there.” —Lorry Kikta, Film Threat
