William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe trailer online
There's a trailer online for a documentary of a man who is being referenced in a number of films coming our way but is far from the main character. William Kunstler is the man who represented in court the Chicago 8 who protested against the Vietnam War, the inmates who took over Attica to protest at their treatment, the American Indians who stood up against the government at Wounded Knee, and many other high profile cases of human rights.
However he also represented some of the most hated members of society, who seemed far from the human rights cases above, rapists, assassins, and other seemingly far darker defendants. He was nicknamed by the New York Times as "the most hated and most loved lawyer in America". Now his daughters have made a film about their father and the lawyer.
Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler follow their father's life looking at his home life as a family man and the public view as the lawyer who moved from activist lawyer to a lawyer who became rather hated for who he was defending.
The trailer for the film is now online, and it looks really interesting, although I'm wondering what the view of the daughters will bring to the documentary, and if they really will tackle the darker parts of his professional life and the defendants that he represented that earned him that nickname from New York Times:
”the most hated and most loved lawyer in America”
