“The most hated and most loved lawyer in America.”

In William Kunstler: Disturbing The Universe, 
filmmakers Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler 
explore the life of their father, the late 
radical civil rights lawyer. In the 1960s and 
70s, William Kunstler fought for civil rights 
with Martin Luther King Jr. and represented the 
famed “Chicago 8” activists who protested the 
Vietnam War. When the inmates took over Attica 
prison, or when the American Indian Movement 
stood up to the federal government at Wounded 
Knee, they asked Kunstler to be their lawyer. To 
his daughters, it seemed that he was at the 
center of everything important that had ever 
happened. But when they were growing up, Kunstler 
represented some of the most reviled members of 
society, including rapists and assassins. This 
powerful film not only recounts the historic 
causes that Kunstler fought for; it also reveals 
a man that even his own daughters did not always 
understand, a man who risked public outrage and 
the safety of his family so that justice could serve all.

“You do not need me to remind you that the 
struggle to obtain and maintain human liberty and 
to resist oppression and tyranny is the perennial 
obligation of all who understand its necessity.”
- William M Kunstler

"Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' 
Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' 
Vanity asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But, 
conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And 
there comes a time when one must take a position 
that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, 
but one must take it because one's conscience tells one that it is right."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
