MVFF Conversation

Aaron Sorkin & The Trial of the Chicago 7 ensemble

Spotlight & MVFF Award for Ensemble

 

Aaron Sorkin, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Jeremy Strong of The Trial of the Chicago 7, in conversation with Peter Coyote

 

The riots that accompanied the 1968 Democratic National Convention ended in a show trial like no other, as the counterculture squared off against a conservative court. Who better to bring this watershed moment in our history into the light than Aaron Sorkin with The Trial of the Chicago 7? The writer-director applies the sharp wit and insight that have been the hallmarks of a career that brought us the classic TV series Sports Night, The West Wing, and The Newsroom, and movies like A Few Good Men, The Social Network, and Moneyball. Join us in what is sure to be an electrifying conversation touching on politics past and present with Sorkin and cast members Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Jeremy Strong.
