INDY YAPPERS-Win Passes to see “William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe”

 

The Indy Film Fest and the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) will present an exclusive screening of the acclaimed documentary (and Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival)  WILLIAM KUNSTLER: DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE at the IMA’s Toby Theater at 7 p.m. on Thursday, February 18, and The Film Yap has your hookup for passes!

One of the most famous lawyers of the 20th century, William Kunstler (1919-1995) was once described by The New York Times as “the most hated and most loved lawyer in America.” His clients included Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Abbie Hoffman, Stokely Carmichael, Leonard Peltier, and the Chicago Seven. He also served as the negotiator for inmates at the 1971 prison uprising at Attica State Prison in New York.

The evening will be hosted by Waples & Hanger, one of the state’s only law firms concentrating on civil rights and constitutional freedoms. Immediately following the film, the Indy Film Fest will hold a Q&A session with attorneys Richard Waples and JauNae Hanger.

The Q & A session will be moderated by Indiana University School of Law Visiting Professor Fran Quigley, associate director of the school’s internationally recognized Indiana-Kenya Project and staff attorney with Indiana Legal Services.
