Film examines lawyer William Kunstler Feb. 24

The Michigan Theater will be presenting a documentary about legal firebrand William Kunstler on Wednesday, Feb. 24.

"William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe" was made by Kunstler's daughters, Sarah and Emily.

The film is "indeed about the radical-leftist attorney. But this engrossing and provocative documentary is also about a tragic kind of liberal guilt." - Boston Globe

According to the theater's Web site, "The filmmakers delve into the life of their father, William Kunstler, whose controversial career and high-profile clients solidified his place in history as one of the most famous--and reviled--20th-century lawyers.

"The documentary captures a deeply personal journey as the sisters trace their father's shift from representing civil rights activists to defending accused rapists, Mafia bosses and terrorists."
