DISSENT is the first documentary to go behind the lines and into the trenches of the judicial confirmation wars. Government's least-understood "Third Branch" has a huge impact on our lives - from abortion to affirmative action, education to the environment, privacy to police action. So we must put our faith in the ideal chiseled on its façade: "Equal Justice Under Law." But in recent years the way we select Supreme Court justices has become dangerously politicized, threatening judicial impartiality. The award-winning film weaves "you-are-there" scenes into an unexpectedly suspenseful narrative.
