TO A MORE PERFECT UNION: U.S. v. WINDSOR ~ 2018 PRIDE FEST
The Bear Tooth and Identity present as part of the 2018 Pride Fest:
TO A MORE PERFECT UNION: U.S. v. WINDSOR, a feature-length
documentary that tells a story of love,
marriage and a fight for equality for
screenings beginning June 7, 2018.
To A More Perfect Union: U.S. v Windsor
chronicles unlikely heroes -- octogenarian Edie
Windsor and her attorney, Roberta Kaplan, on their quest for justice: Edie had been forced to
pay a huge estate tax bill upon the death of her spouse because the federal government denied federal benefits to same-sex couples – and Edie’s spouse was a woman. Deeply offended by this lack of recognition of her more than forty-year relationship with the love of her life, Edie decided to sue the United States government – and won. Windsor and Kaplan’s legal and personal journeys are told in their own words and through interviews with others including well-known supporters and opponents. Beyond the story of this pivotal case in the marriage equality movement and the stories behind it, the film also tells the story of our journey as a people, as a culture, and as citizens with equal rights.
Tickets on sale Tuesday, May 29th online and at the Bear Tooth box office!
