Organizers: The Center for American Progress, Cato Institute. 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.
