LIMITED PARNTERSHIP will screen on February 14th @ 7:00 PM
We will have a special Valentine’s Day screening of the 2014 documentary, LIMITED PARTNERSHIP on Saturday, February 14th, 7:00 PM @ UNCSA’s ACE Theatre Complex. Tickets are $6.00 and will be available beginning at 6:15 in the ACE lobby.
LIMITED PARTNERSHIP is the love story of Filipino-American, Richard Adams, and his Australian husband, Tony Sullivan. In 1975, thanks to a courageous county clerk in Boulder, CO, Richard and Tony were one of the first same-sex couples to be legally married in the United States. Richard immediately filed for a green card for Tony based on their marriage. But unlike most heterosexual married couples who easily file petitions and earn green cards, Richard received a denial letter from the Immigration and Nationalization Service (INS) stating, “You have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots.” Outraged at the tone, tenor and politics of this letter and to prevent Tony’s impending deportation, the couple sued the U.S. government. This became the first federal lawsuit seeking equal treatment for a same-sex marriage in U.S. history.
“Remarkably poignant…skill of the filmmakers socks the story home.” – Hollywood Reporter
