Three subjects of Casting the First Stone believe that abortion is a woman’s right. Three believe it is cold-blooded murder. Gustafson’s film plunges into their midst, going headlong into one of the most hotly contested issues in American life, allowing representatives of both sides to tell their stories, and striking right at the emotional heart of this political struggle. Screening with Investigation of a Flame: A Documentary Portrait of the Catonsville Nine, another film of direct action protest, using archival footage and new interviews to revisit the case of a motley crew of activists who invaded a Catonsville, Maryland draft board in order to incinerate selective service records.

Screening in the series Icarus Films at 40.
