This looks like an amazing documentary chronicling the first time a civil right was put on the ballot, to be decided by mob rule — Proposition 8 — and the millions pumped into the fight by the Mormons in the name of faith. Here’s the first trailer for 8-The Mormon Proposition:

Producer Steven Greenstreet, who sent me the trailer link (it just went live) says it has just been submitted to Sundance other festivals. He was a journalist in 2008, and did a lot of coverage of Prop 8. When he left his news agency, he began working with the crew that made this documentary.
