The Fight is an inspiring, emotional insider look at how these important battles are fought and the legal gladiators on the front lines fighting them. Directors Elyse Steinberg, Josh Kriegman, and Eli Despres capture the rollercoaster ride of the thrill and defeat in these deeply human battles. When a mother is separated from her child, a soldier is threatened to lose his career, a young woman's right to choose is imperiled at the pleasure of a government official, and the ability to exercise our basic right to vote is threatened, the consequences can be devastating to us and to future generations. The Fight celebrates the unsung heroes who fiercely work to protect our freedoms. Written by Magnolia Pictures

Powerful & Inspiring
1 October 2020 | by highdobbSee all my reviews

I'm glad there was a documentary crew capturing these moments as they happened. I can only think that this should be a series (perhaps a sequel of "The Fight Continues"??!) because the onslaught of unjustness continues. It's inspiring to see people stand up to these legal systems and the executive branch; lending a voice to the powerless. Thank you ACLU for all you do and especially for everyone you do it for-we the people.
