EVENT: Screening of "Save Marriage"

"Saving Marriage" chronicles the true story of the Massachusetts fight to save marriage equality. The film will inspire Californians who are in their own fight to win back marriage rights after the passage of Prop 8.

Massachusetts went down this road fighting for marriage equality four years before California did and the two fights are strikingly similar. Activists in Massachusetts tried to fight off a constitutional amendment that would take gay marriage away, but they narrowly lost. Then, the community spent the next year and a half changing peoples' minds about same sex marriage before the issue came up for a vote the second time.

"Exuberantly big-hearted... Engrossing... Rambunctious and hopeful."
- Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

"Acutely suspenseful ... A virtual how-to manual for changing hearts
and minds."
- Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

"Even for those who think they know the full story...this documentary
will be a revelation."
- Jonathan Curiel, San Francisco Chronicle

Co-directors Mike Roth and John Henning will do Q & A following the screening.
