WINNER: GLAAD MEDIA AWARD FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY
8: THE MORMON PROPOSITION is an indictment of the Mormon Church’s historic involvement in the promotion and passage of California’s Proposition 8 and the Mormon religion’s secretive, decades-long campaign against gay rights. The film takes place in California and Utah as Mormons, following their prophet’s call to action, wage spiritual warfare fought with money and lies against US citizens and their fight for marriage equality and the rights that come with marriage.
Narrated by Academy Award winning MILK screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, this acclaimed documentary has earned rave reviews since premiering at the Sundance Film Festival.
