Filmmakers Emily and Sarah Kunstler Memorialize Their Father's Work

Civil rights activist William Kunstler liked to call himself a radical lawyer. He spent his life representing the underdogs, defending freedom riders in Mississippi, an accused terrorist and the Chicago Eight. William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe, a documentary profiling his life and work produced by his daughters, filmmakers Emily and Sarah Kunstler, airs Tuesday at 10:00 p.m. on WTTW Channel 11. The filmmakers sat down with Richard Steele earlier this year to talk about their father and their efforts to memorialize his life and work.
