Details: The UT Law ACS Student Chapter will be attending the Austin Film Festival to view a screening of "Loving"!
“Loving” celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.
This film, along with a number of others set to premiere at AFF this year, represents the passion for storytelling that AFF aims to bring to their festival and tells a true story that still resonates in today’s world.
