From acclaimed documentarian and activist Dawn Porter (Trapped, Gideon’s Army), John Lewis: Good Trouble surveys the life and hard-fought achievements of the legendary civil rights activist and Democratic Representative from Georgia. Combining rare archival footage and interviews—with congressional newcomers including Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Civil Rights Movement giants like James Clyburn and the late Elijah Cummings—the documentary looks back on its subject’s 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, healthcare reform and immigration. Most of all, Porter includes candid conversations with Lewis himself, who looks back on his childhood experiences, family, and a fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. A Magnolia Pictures release.
