Charles Garry Film at Mill Valley Film Festival

October 8, 2007

The Guild is a proud copresenter of The People's Advocate: The Life and Times of Charles Garry - World Premiere at this year's Mill Valley Film Festival.

Charles R. Garry was one of the great badass radicals of the '60s. The San Francisco criminal defense attorney changed the way American law was practiced when he won freedom for clients like Black Panther Party founders Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, and the antiwar activists dubbed the Oakland Seven, in the nation's most important and highly charged political trials of the day. Archival footage, historical background and interviews with those who witnessed Garry working his impassioned legal magic create a superb portrait of "the defender of the despised," whose illustrious career came to a shattering end when his client, Reverend Jim Jones, enacted a mass suicide at Jonestown. For any student of the sixties, this is a must-see.
