It is a shocking truth that well into the latter half of the 20th century, a married couple in the United States could be forbidden to live together and banished from their home simply because they did not share the same skin color.In this eye-opening and triumphant documentary, director Nancy Buirski peels back the veil on an overlooked but crucial story of the Civil Rights movement, the US Supreme Court case of Loving vs. Virginia, 1967. Persecuted by a local sheriff, the Lovings (he was white, she was part black and part Cherokee) were found guilty of violating Virginia's law against interracial marriage and forced to leave the state.But Mildred Loving chose to fight.She wrote a letter to Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy asking for help.He referred her to the ACLU and two young attorneys took the case. Drawing on extensive archival footage, and on contemporary interviews with the family and the attorneys, the film vividly brings a monumental court case to life. Shortlisted: Best Documentary Feature, Academy Awards

Director Nancy Buirski and Outreach Producer Derek Britt are expected to attend both the 1/8 and 1/9 screenings.
