From the filmmaking team that made the award-winning “Weiner” (2016), comes a rousing, inspiring, and slyly humorous documentary that follows four seismically important ACLU cases.

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 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 ACLU has never granted access to its offices, even as its battles have become more timely and momentous than ever. THE FIGHT obtains this access, capturing the rollercoaster ride of thrill and defeat in these deeply human conflicts.

When a mother is separated from her child, a soldier is threatened to lose 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.

After your ticket purchase, you have THREE day to enjoy.
