Virtual Cinema – John Lewis: Good Trouble

Streaming through October 4

"Excellent. A joyful, galvanizing portrait of a life radically and fully lived."
– Entertainment Weekly


John Lewis: Good Trouble, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Dawn Porter (Trapped, Gideon's Army), chronicles John Robert Lewis’s 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform, and immigration.

Using present-day interviews with Lewis, now 80 years old, 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 figure prominently in his life.

Run Time: 1hr 36 min
Rated PG
