About This Event

The Center for American Progress and the Cato Institute invite you to a sneak preview of the forthcoming documentary "Advise & Dissent." A bipartisan discussion about judicial selection and current politics will follow the screening.

A feature documentary now in post-production, "Advise & Dissent" unveils the politics and personalities behind the recent—and coming—battles over the Supreme Court. With unprecedented access to Senators Specter and Leahy and leading advocates on both sides, the film charts a roller-coaster ride through the Roberts, Miers, and Alito confirmations. This documentary lays bare the collision of justice and politics that is re-shaping America's future.

Kathryn Kolbert, President, People for the American Way
Manuel Miranda, chairman, Third Branch Conference
Ilya Shapiro, Senior Fellow, Center for Constitutional Studies, Cato Institute; Editor-in-Chief, Cato Supreme Court Review
Winnie Stachelberg, Senior Vice President for External Affairs, Center for American Progress
