The Loving Story

Production of a 90-minute documentary on the Supreme Court case Loving v. Virginia (1967) and the legal case concerning anti-miscegenation laws.

Long Way Home: The Loving Story, a documentary film, tells the dramatic story of Richard and Mildred Loving whose groundbreaking legal case was the turning point in the struggle for marriage equality in the U.S. Amazingly, the story of the Lovings? interracial marriage, their arrest, punishment and exile has never been depicted in a full-length documentary form. Neither has the crime they accused of committing, miscegenation, been examined in depth. The 90-minute film investigates the lives and the legend of two heroes of the Civil Rights era, Mildred and Richard Loving, whose quest to be married reached the Supreme Court, and subsequently over-turned all anti-miscegenation laws in the United States.
