Image from the film The Case Against Eight.
This film offers a behind-the-scenes look inside the historic case to overturn California’s ban on same-sex marriage. In addition to the unlikely pairing of Ted Olson and David Boies, political foes who faced off as opposing attorneys in Bush v. Gore, the film also follows the plaintiffs, two gay couples at the center of the same-sex marriage controversy. Five years in the making, this is the story of the first federal marriage-equality lawsuit taken to the U.S. Supreme Court. (2K DCP presentation)

Attorney Enrique Monagas from the film is scheduled to be present.
