John Lewis: Good Trouble

Date: Thursday, August 06, 2020
Duration: All Day

PG | Documentary     

Chronicles the life and career of the legendary civil rights activist and Democratic Representative from Georgia. John Robert Lewis’ 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration are the focus of the new documentary. Using present-day interviews with Lewis, now 80 years old, the film explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957.

The film features a variety of voices that showcased him in different ways. To young legislators, he demonstrates that you can live your principles and get things done, while still being true to yourself. His seasoned colleagues see him as a consistent and loyal friend. Americans from all walks of life greet the Congressman as though he were a dear friend, thanking him for his leadership and inspiration.

Often called "one of the most courageous persons the Civil Rights Movement ever produced," John Lewis has dedicated his life to protecting human rights, securing civil liberties, and building what he calls "The Beloved Community” in America. His dedication to the highest ethical standards and moral principles has won him the admiration of many of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the United States Congress.

Immediately following the feature, there will be a pre-recorded discussion between Representative Lewis and Oprah Winfrey, filmed last month and being made available exclusively for virtual cinema and in-theater engagements of the film. This is a wide-ranging, informal, 16-minute conversation that’s a perfect follow-up to the documentary, and could not be more relevant.
