The Loving Story
The Maine Jewish Film Festival with the support of the Moser Family Foundation and Railroad Square Cinema presents The Loving Story, in association with the University of Maine School of Law, with promotional support from Portland NAACP, ACLU of Maine, Holocaust & Human Rights Center and Equality Maine.

This Oscar shortlisted documentary, with its contemporary parallels, will live on as record of monumental change, not just in civil rights, but in the human right to pursue happiness regardless of color, gender or creed. A racially-charged criminal trial and a heart-rending love story converge in this definitive documentary about Mildred and Richard Loving. The marriage of Mildred (who was part-black and part-Native American) and Richard (who was white) was declared illegal in 1958 by their home state of Virginia.  They refused to leave one another and, with the help of the ACLU, relentlessly pursued their right to happiness. Their case made it all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court where, in 1967, it struck down laws against interracial marriage in this country once and for all. THE LOVING STORY recreates a seminal moment in history and reflects a timely message of marriage equality in a personal, human love story. Narrated by Jane Alexander. Q and A session to follow screening. Unrated. 77 Min.
