Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins
Sep 21 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins

Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins tells the story of media firebrand Molly Ivins who took on the “Good Old Boy” corruption wherever she found it.  Intimidatingly brilliant and quintessentially Texan, Ivins was politically blue in a scarlet red state and unabashedly brash in her famously lauded political assessments. A workaholic, she traded conventional relationships and intimacy for beer, a solid typewriter, and boots made for muckraking. She dedicated four decades of her signature, droll wit to tackling corruption, defending free speech, and making all the right frenemies. Her razor sharp wit left both sides of the aisle laughing, and craving ink in her columns. She knew the Bill of Rights was in peril, and said that “polarizing people is a good way to win an election and a good way to wreck a country.” Molly’s words have proved prescient. Now it’s up to us to raise hell!

To A More Perfect Union: U.S. v Windsor
Sep 27 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
To A More Perfect Union: U.S. v Windsor

To A More Perfect Union: U.S. v Windsor tells a story of love, marriage and a fight for equality. The film chronicles unlikely heroes — octogenarian Edie Windsor and her attorney, Roberta Kaplan, on their quest for justice: Edie had been forced to pay a huge estate tax bill upon the death of her spouse because the federal government denied federal benefits to same-sex couples; Edie’s spouse was a woman. Deeply offended by this lack of recognition of her more than forty-year relationship with the love of her life, Edie decided to sue the United States government – and won. Beyond the story of this pivotal case in the marriage equality movement, the film also speaks to our journey as a people, as a culture, and as citizens with equal rights.
