Part of Love From BAM and Film

Dir. Dawn Porter | 96min, 2020

Acclaimed filmmaker Dawn Porter (Trapped, Gideon’s Army) chronicles the extraordinary life and career of legendary civil rights activist and Georgia congressman John Lewis. Using rare archival footage and interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other key figures—as well as present-day interviews with Lewis, now 80 years old—the film takes audiences through Lewis’ 60-plus year career of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health care reform, and immigration. Porter also delves into Lewis’ childhood, his inspiring family, and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. Shot in a cinéma verité style, John Lewis: Good Trouble is a timely portrait of a civil rights hero.
