Boycott follows the stories of a news publisher, an attorney and a speech therapist, who, when forced to choose between their jobs and their political beliefs, launch legal battles that expose an attack on freedom of speech across America. The film traces the impact of state legislation passed in 33 states – including Arizona – designed to penalize individuals and companies that choose to boycott Israel due to its human rights record. A legal thriller with “accidental plaintiffs” at the center of the story, Boycott is a bracing look at the far-reaching implications of anti-boycott legislation and an inspiring tale of everyday Americans standing up to protect our rights in an age of shifting politics and threats to freedom of speech.
Following the screening, there will be a live Q&A with, Mik Jordahl, an attorney who launched one of the first lawsuits challenging the anti-boycott laws in the country and whose story is featured in Boycott; Darrell Hill, Policy Director at the ACLU of Arizona, the legal team that defended Mik; and Julia Bacha, Just Vision's Creative Director and the Director of Boycott.
Registration required. Screening starts at 7pm. Please arrive by 6:30pm.
