Question One
May 25 through May 31 at 7 & 9:15 PM

(James Nubile and Joseph Fox, 2011, USA, Blu-ray, 108 min)

On May 6th, 2009, Maine became the first state in this country to legislatively grant same-sex couples the right to marry. Seven months later, on November 3rd, 2009, Maine reversed that decision, becoming the thirty-first state in this country to say "no" to gay and lesbian marriage. It was an outcome that took the country by storm, and surprised many.

Question One chronicles the fierce and emotional battle that took place in Maine during that time, a battle whose political symbolism is a bellwether for the greater ideological battlefield in American politics, the greater stakes in terms of civil liberties, constitutional safeguards, legal rights and human dignity, but above all, a battle that will form a fulcrum in the 2012 elections.

Taking a "War Room" cinema-verite approach, Question One  is the first documentary to ever cover this civil rights battle from both sides of a campaign. The filmmakers spent the duration of the campaign as both sides formulated strategies, created advertising messages, shared private insights, prayed, cried, demonstrated, vociferated, petitioned and buttonholed, as they approached a battle framed by issues of civil rights, societal changes, religion, children, public school education, sex, love, hate, fear and loathing.

Produced by Fly On The Wall Productions and directed by award-winning journalists Joe Fox and James Nubile; Question One chronicles the campaigns and the issues raised but also tells the very human stories of various individuals who were connected on both sides of the divide, caught up in a cycle of events that would change their lives forever.
