November 22, 1963 is a day that is remembered by anyone who was alive to hear the news when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. To mark the 60th Anniversary of the event, the acclaimed documentary RUSH TO JUDGMENT has been digitally restored and for presentation in theatres to mark the occasion.
Released in 1966, the documentary was notable for its thesis; a simple, concise legal argument that the Warren Commission was hiding something, suggesting a broader conspiracy. Lee Harvey Oswald could not have single-handedly killed President John F. Kennedy.
Director Emile de Antonio and lawyer Mark Lane (author of the book upon which the film is based) recorded unpolished, first-hand interviews from witnesses with direct proximity to the murders–but who were not given a platform in the official inquiry. For a subject that has been rehashed and sensationalized so many times in the intervening 60 years, this documentary brings fresh clarity and presents a cool-headed argument that is untouched by time.
