The Campaign

Herring, Christie; Kanopy (Firm)
Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
THE CAMPAIGN follows the people behind California's historic "No on 8" campaign to defend same-sex marriage through exclusive behind the scenes footage, interwoven with the national history of same-sex relationship recognition since the 1950s. The story focuses on an ensemble of five characters -; Alison, Holli, Richard, Anne and Claudia -; as they labor tirelessly to defeat Proposition 8, sacrificing time with the families they are fighting to protect. The film positions their efforts within the context of shifting legal and political landscapes, from Anita Bryant's "Save our Children," to the invention of the word "Domestic Partner" in San Francisco, to Pat Buchanan's declaration of a "culture war," and finally to the wave of marriage bans that swept 41 states across the nation. The shocking passage of Prop 8 in seemingly LGBT-friendly California changed the landscape forever, both for the US LGBT equality movement and for the individual activists who dropped what they were doing and threw themselves into the largest social issue campaign the us has ever seen. Featuring a beautiful score from the Kronos Quartet and Jacob Garchik, THE CAMPAIGN emerges as an unprecedented installment of LGBT social history and a signature documentary on one of the most pressing civil rights issues of our times.
