It took producers of 8: The Mormon Proposition an entire year to document the Mormon Church’s involvement in erasing California’s gay marriage rights. But just one week after Maine’s marriage defeat, there’s already a film ready to show you the backstory.
To be fair, New Left Media’s NO ON ONE – The Campaign to Protect Marriage Equality in Maine isn’t ready for the theater. But it’s excellent to have Chase Whiteside and Erick Stoll’s short film at the ready so soon after Nov. 3’s election. “This film chronicles the final days of the on-the-ground campaign to protect marriage equality in Maine,” producers say in a release.
Not only prescient, No On One is beautifully shot. And a historical record. And terribly sad.
