Radical attorney William Kunstler championed the underdogs in some of the most important civil rights and anti-war cases of that contentious era known as the 1960s. By the 1980s, he was representing some of the most reviled defendants in America — accused terrorists, rapists and mobsters. William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe is a portrait of Kunstler from a surprising perspective. In the film, Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler attempt to reconcile the heroic movement lawyer from the past with the father they knew.
In their filmmaker interview, Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler explain that they hope the story of their father’s life will inspire audience members to act and speak out when they see injustice. Here are a variety of ways that you can spread the word about William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe.
