11:00 AM: Staff Attorney by Nicholas Cartier

Directed by Daniel Douek

An insider portrait of the world of big firm law that grapples with vexing questions of race, merit and diversity, Staff Attorney is the David and Goliath story of a legal battle between a young African-American woman and one of the country’s oldest and most powerful law firms. When recent Harvard Law grad Deanna Williams joins forces with her former law professor to sue the white-shoe law firm of Foster & Carlyle, accusing it of hiring African-Americans in dead-end legal jobs to create a facade of diversity, the firm will stop at nothing to protect its reputation - even if it means destroying hers in the process. A legal drama of constantly shifting perspective, Staff Attorney explores the wounds inflicted on a young woman who may be both victim and opportunist and the lengths to which she'll go to not only seek justice but revenge.
