"Boycott" Documentary Screening to Benefit ACLU of Arkansas

Thursday, February 23, 2023 • 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM CST

$25.00

Event Details

Film starts at 6 PM with a cocktail reception at 5 PM.


In Boycott, award-winning filmmaker Julia Bacha pulls back the curtain on a movement of

conservative legislators and lobbyists in Arkansas and the United States who are succeeding in

curtailing free speech. Thirty-four states have introduced anti-boycott laws, which require

individuals and companies seeking public contracts to sign a pledge promising they will not

boycott Israel. The Arkansas Times refused to sign on First Amendment grounds, losing much

of its state advertising.

After Alan Leveritt, publisher of the Times, an attorney in Arizona, and a speech therapist in

Texas are told they must choose between their livelihoods and their political beliefs, they launch

legal battles supported by the ACLU. Their stories cut to the heart of a pressing national issue

and illustrate how the right to free speech could be redefined across US society for generations

to come.

The film is 73 minutes long and will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A with Suhad Babaa, the

film’s Producer, Alan Leveritt of the Arkansas Times, and the ACLU of Arkansas team.
