AIFF 14 OPENING NIGHT FILM
A behind-the-scenes look at the historic case to overturn California’s ban on same-sex marriage. Filmed over five years, The Case Against 8 follows the unlikely pairing of lead attorneys from opposite sides of the political spectrum. Ted Olson and David Boies last faced off as opposing attorneys in Bush v. Gore. Now as a team, they challenge California’s Proposition 8, the notorious 2008 ballot measure that repealed the right of same-sex couples to marry. The film also follows the plaintiffs, two gay couples who find their families at the center of the controversy. This is the story of how they took the first federal marriage equality lawsuit to the US Supreme Court — and won.
