JOHN LEWIS – GOOD TROUBLE
TICKETS $12 // ONCE FILM IS PURCHASED, YOU HAVE 30 DAYS TO BEGIN WATCHING AND 3 DAYS TO FINISH WATCHING THE FILM
JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Dawn Porter (TRAPPED, GIDEON’S ARMY), chronicles the life and career of the legendary civil rights activist and Democratic Representative from Georgia, and celebrates his 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform, and immigration. Featuring both rare archival footage and exclusive interviews with the late Congressman, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figured prominently in his life.
Tickets include exclusive access to the Q&A between John Lewis and Oprah Winfrey, which plays at the end of the film (and is only available through virtual cinema), and the recent amazing panel discussion hosted by the Freedom Rides Museum and featuring Freedom Riders Dr. Bernard Lafayette and Dr. Rip Patton in conversation with director Dawn Porter — archived and available to watch for free right through your ticketing page.
“LEWIS IS A NATIONAL TREASURE WHOSE LEADERSHIP PAVED THE WAY FOR A GENERATION. THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A MORE URGENT NEED FOR THE TYPE OF MORAL AND COMPASSIONATE LEADERSHIP THAT HE EMBODIES.” THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
