William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe DVD (2010) Documentary About the Most Famous Leftist Lawyers of the '60s and '70s
Produced by Two of Kuntsler's Daughters

BuzzFlash.com's Review (excerpt)
"This is a fascinating, engaging, and balanced portrait of the civil rights attorney William Kunstler. The film documents Mr. Kunstler's life and career from his military service during WWII to his early years practicing law in Westchester County to his transformation into a leading civil rights figure and his eventual career as a criminal defense attorney in NYC. Made by his two daughters, the film also tells the story of both the challenges and the inspiration that resulted from growing up with Mr. Kunstler as a father. The filmmakers are not uncritical of their father and don't hesitate to question the motives behind some of Mr. Kunstler's decisions.

The film includes interviews with an impressive cast of individuals who knew Mr. Kunstler or were involved with the cases he argued. These include well known figures Jimmy Breslin, Bobby Seale, and Julian Bond, among others, and lesser known figures including a juror from the Chicago Conspiracy trial and an Attica prison guard. The filmmakers also make excellent use of archival footage and photographs, both from mainstream media and from Mr. Kunstler's personal life.

I would highly recommend this film to anyone interested in civil rights history, activism, and American justice."

"This film is a biography of William Kunstler, a notable civil rights attorney who came to national prominence in America during the "Chicago 7" trial and who subsequently defended many famous clients including the American Indian Movement, the prisoners of Attica prison in upstate New York, Catholic anti-war protesters who burned draft board records and many others. Kunstler's legacy is one that will inspire us for generations!"
