Film Information

With The Fight, the ACLU grants access to its offices for the first time — providing an unprecedented view on its work on abortion rights, immigration rights, LGBT rights, and voting rights. Rousing, inspiring, and slyly humorous, The Fight follows four important cases and a handful of magnetic attorneys. These lawyers may not know how to charge a cell phone or operate a stand-up desk but have made persuasive arguments before Supreme Court Justices. From the filmmaking team of Eli B. Despres, Josh Kriegman, and Elyse Steinberg, makers of 2016’s award-winning Weiner.
