In William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe, filmmakers Emily and Sarah Kunstler try to make sense of their father’s journey from middle-class family man, to protest movement lawyer, to being both revered as a hero and reviled as the most hated lawyer in America. The feature-length (86-minute) documentary recalls landmark legal cases involving civil rights and anti-war activists, accused terrorists and murderers. Along the way, it raises significant questions about justice, democracy and dissent. This discussion guide helps groups and students talk about this exceptional film.
