Harry Belafonte featured in William Kunstler film

Kunstler: Defending the Universe, a documentary directed by the late civil rights lawyer’s daughters Emily and Sarah Kunstler, features Harry Belafonte together with Daniel Berrigan, Herman Badillo, and Jimmy Breslin, among others. This moving and fascinating documentary is an honest effort to present both a collective and personal history of a man whose most controversial work puzzled his frightened children. For them, “Disturbing the Universe” is not only an accomplished film but good therapy.

For Kunstler’s daughters, the film is an attempt to separate the legend from the father they knew.

Bellafonte is among those interviewed about their recollections of Kunstler, with whom he worked closely through many civil rights campaigns.
