Rush to Judgment

Scheduled to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination, the new digital restoration of the documentary Rush to Judgment presents a convincing legal argument that the Warren Commission was incorrect in suggesting that Lee Harvey Oswald single-handedly killed President John F. Kennedy. The influential filmmaker Emile de Antonio (1919–1989), working with attorney Mark Lane, recorded interviews from witnesses with direct proximity to the assassination who were not given a platform in the official inquiry. 

Underwriting for the Film Department is provided by Tenaris, The June Leaf and Robert Frank Foundation, and the Vaughn Foundation.

Generous funding is provided by The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea; Nina and Michael Zilkha; Foundation for Independent Media Arts; Franci Neely; Carrin Patman and Jim Derrick; Ms. Laurence Unger; L'Alliance Française de Houston; and ILEX Foundation.
