Human Rights Film Festival presents 'Last Best Chance'
Date of Event: February 15, 2011
Posted: February 7, 2011
The Human Rights Film Festival at Denison University presents a documentary film, “Last Best Chance.” The screening will be held in Slayter Hall Auditorium (200 Ridge Road).
“Last Best Chance” is the directors’ cut of the HBO special “The Senators’ Bargain,” produced and directed by Michael Camerini and Shari Robertson. In the spring of 2007, immigration advocates and grassroots activists were expecting great things.
Just a year earlier, Senators Ted Kennedy and John McCain had deftly shepherded a comprehensive immigration reform bill all the way to passage in the Senate. But the Kennedy lost his partner, McCain, to the presidential primaries, and the Republicans had since put a very different offer on the table.
Deep at the heart of this fast-moving story, below the level of strategy and protocol, is a tale of modern American politics. Kennedy is forced to decide how much he wants his deal, and what is he willing to trade for his greatest legacy.
