William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe

WILLIAM KUNSTLER: DISTURBING THE UNIVERSE has been accepted by the Sundance Film Festival.

He represented civil rights and anti-war activists, as well as accused terrorists and murders. In William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe, filmmakers Emily and Sarah Kunstler explore their father's life, from middle-class family man, to movement lawyer, to the most hated lawyer in America.

The festival takes place from January 15th to the 25th.


William Kunstler was one of the most famous lawyers of the 20th Century. His clients included Martin Luther King Jr,, the Chicago 8, the inmates in the Attica prison rebellion, and members of the Black Power and American Indian Movements. In Disturbing the Universe: Radical Lawyer William Kunstler, filmmakers Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler investigate their father's transformation from a middle-class family man into a person of courage who risked everything for his beliefs. This is a a documentary work in progress. The expected completion date is Fall, 2008.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
