Tying the Knot, the award-winning definitive documentary on the marriage movement, is playing TODAY in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Chicago, Long Beach, New York and Washington DC. The film, which captures the entire history of the movement back to 1971 and from around the world, incorporates human stories – the kind of real-life gay and lesbian people that never make it into the Big Gay Movies, from Oklahoma to Tampa to Holland – with all the biggest names, advocates, experts in the field. From Evan Wolfson to Log Cabin’s Jeff Cooke, from Cambridge-historian EJ Graff to Andrew Sullivan, from Clinton to Kerry to Bush – no leaf goes unturned. WINNER of the Best Feature Awards (both Audience and Jury) at the Fresno Film Festival, WINNNER of the Documentary Award at the Frameline Int’l Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, and the only doc to receive Honorable Mention in Montreal.... TYING THE KNOT has an incredibly limited run, and may not be in the theatres much longer. See it TODAY, in the theatre, on film... And experience the movement for fair and equal marriage in ways you never thought possible.

Going behind the headlines in this first-time doc by director Jim de Sève, a gay rancher fights to keep his property and a lesbian police officer fights for recognition of her slain wife, a fellow officer, while delving into the legal and societal history of marriage.

\"Moving and compelling... I urge you to tell your friends, family and coworkers about this film.\"
- Paul Cares, Dir. of Public Education, ACLU

“TYING THE KNOT succeeds by putting a poignant human face on the struggle for
equal rights. “
Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle

“A sane, civil, humanist case for marriage for all, and you never fully
forget the woebegone faces of people like Mickie and Sam. “
- Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
