Knock Down The House (Free Screening)

25th November 2019 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Join us on the 25th November for a free screening of Knock Down The House, the inspiring story that chronicles the meteoric rise of four female Democrats during the 2018 midterms.

“When tragedy struck her family in the midst of the financial crisis, Bronx-born Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to work double shifts in a restaurant to save her home from foreclosure. After losing a loved one to a preventable medical condition, Amy Vilela didn’t know what to do with the anger she felt about America’s broken health care system. Cori Bush was drawn into the streets when the police shooting of an unarmed black man brought protests and tanks into her neighborhood. Paula Jean Swearengin was fed up with watching her friends and family suffer and die from the environmental effects of the coal industry. At a moment of historic volatility in American politics, these four women decide to fight back, setting themselves on a journey that will change their lives and their country forever. Without political experience or corporate money, they build a movement of insurgent candidates challenging powerful incumbents in Congress. Their efforts result in a legendary upset.”

The film will be followed by a panel discussion – we will announce who is part of the panel shortly.
