Last Thursday, U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan ruled against us, unfortunately denying our arguments.

We are appealing this decision, as we feel it is a violation of our First Amendment rights and could have a seriously chilling effect on documentary filmmakers and journalists everywhere. We appreciate the incredible outpouring of support from people in the documentary community and allies all over the world, and we hope that this extremely troubling situation will conclude in our favor.  We will keep you posted on all developments.  Please keep checking back here for updates.

Thank you for your support.
