William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe

A brilliant documentary based on a man who lived life with resolve. His period of brilliance starts once he has returned from World War II when he studies to become a lawyer. During the 60's he became catalyzed and became one of the most prolific political activists of our modern age. 

A documentary for all those who wonder what they can be if they give themselves the chance to succeed. 

William Kunstler was one of the most famous lawyers of the 20th century. The New York Times called him "the most hated and most loved lawyer in America." His clients included Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, Phillip and Daniel Berrigan, Abbie Hoffman, H. Rap Brown, Stokely Carmichael, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., and Leonard Peltier. In Disturbing the Universe: Radical Lawyer William Kunstler, filmmakers Emily Kunstler and Sarah Kunstler explore their father's life, from middle-class family man, to movement lawyer, to "the most hated lawyer in America."
