KNOCK DOWN The HOUSE – DOC10 Opening Night

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shovels ice into a bucket, as she preps for her day job as a bartender, while setting out to change the political landscape of American democracy. In this timely, moving, and ultimately inspiring movie, filmmaker Rachel Lears (The Hand that Feeds) follows the charismatic rising progressive star and three other insurgent female candidates running for Congress in 2018. As Ocasio-Cortez faces off against Democratic boss Joseph Crowley in New York City, we meet other “Justice Democrats”—including a coal miner’s daughter in West Virginia, a grieving mother in Nevada, and a registered African American nurse in Missouri—all of whom are fighting for the issues they’re most passionate about and shaking up the establishment. “Thrilling” (Slate), “vivid” (New York Times), “immediate and engaging” (Indiewire), this “extraordinary” documentary has a “seductive emotional power” (The Hollywood Reporter).
