No CPTV Airdates Currently Scheduled (Check Listings)
This documentary examines the life of radical attorney William Kunstler 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 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. An Official Selection of the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.
