Filmmaker Interview

Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler

In this Web-exclusive extended interview, filmmakers Emily and Sarah Kunstler talk about their film, William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe, which examines the life of their father, a civil rights lawyer who described himself as a "radical" attorney. The filmmakers talk about Kunstler's career, the role he believed that good storytelling plays in the courtroom, and how making the film helped them to understand him better as a complicated person whose decisions they didn't always agree with growing up. They also discuss their father's legacy and how it has affected their own careers as filmmaker and lawyer/filmmaker.
