A Reel Progress Screening
October 20, 2008, 7:00pm ET - 9:00pm ET
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.
