Discovery docu 'With All Deliberate Speed' gets theatrical release

MUMBAI: Discovery Docs, the documentary arm of Discovery Communications, has entered new terrain with its latest film With All Deliberate Speed, which it co-produced with CameraPlanet Pictures.

With All Deliberate Speed is the first theatrical documentary release from Discovery Docs and opened in theaters in five major cities -- New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston -- on 14 May 14. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on 6 May.

The film will have its television debut on Discovery channel in the US on 26 May. The documentary, which marks the 50th anniversary of a landmark US Supreme Court judgement on education and society, is directed by Peter Gilbert.



The film weaves together the inspiring story of the people behind Brown v. Board of Education with a look at its complex legacy. Led by Chief Justice Earl Warren, the United States Supreme Court hands down a blockbuster decision. "In the field of public education, the doctrine of 'separate but equal' has no place," reads the opinion. "Separate educational facilities are inherently unequal." The highest court in the land determines that segregated public schools deny African-American students equal protection under the law. A nation is forever changed.

"The film is as much about today as it is about yesterday," says filmmaker Peter Gilbert. "The legacy of the Brown decision is a mixed one, and continues to enlighten, define, and complicate our society." Gilbert sees first-hand its impact as he visits current high school students -- and in some cases, finds subtle reflections of what drove a small group of teenagers to take a stand 50 years ago.



Peter Gilbert was producer and director of photography for the award- winning and broadly popular documentary Hoop Dreams (1994). His other works include All the Rage (1999), which won Best Film at the Milan Film Festival, and Vietnam: Long Time Coming," for which Gilbert won a National Emmy for Distinguished Network Programming and the prestigious Directors Guild of American Award for Best Directing of a Documentary.
