The Tribeca Film Festival Presents “The Loving Story” – Thursday, April 21, 2011 – Friday, April 29, 2011
Director Nancy Buirski says “The Loving Story is first of all a love story. It’s a story of a modest, humble couple who triumph over all odds to reverse decades-old anti-miscegenation/anti-interracial marriage sentiments and bigotry. The Lovings were a couple who wanted the right to love whom they wanted to love, and felt that it was important for other people to have that same right.”
