Knock Down the House Trailer and Key Art Released by Netflix

-

Netflix has released the official Knock Down the House trailer and key art, which you can both view below. The award-winning documentary will open in select theaters and will also launch globally on the streaming service on May 1st.

Four exceptional women mount grassroots campaigns against powerful incumbents in Knock Down the House, an inspiring look at the 2018 midterm elections that tipped the balance of power. When tragedy struck her family in the middle of the financial crisis, Bronx-born Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to work double shifts as a bartender to save her home from foreclosure. After losing a loved one to a preventable medical condition, Amy Vilela didn’t know what to do with the anger she felt about America’s broken health care system. Cori Bush, a registered nurse and pastor, was drawn to the streets when the police shooting of an unarmed black man brought protests and tanks into her neighborhood. A coal miner’s daughter, Paula Jean Swearengin was fed up with watching her friends and family suffer from the environmental effects of the coal industry.

Winner of the Audience Award: U.S. Documentary and the Festival Favorite Award at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, Knock Down the House joins these courageous women on the campaign trail as they mobilize their bases, engage voters, and fuel a movement during a historic time in American politics.

The film was directed by Rachel Lears (The Hand that Feeds) and written by Lears and Robin Blotnick (The Hand that Feeds). The movie was produced by Lears, Blotnick, and Sarah Olson (Fed Up). It features a score by Ryan Blotnick (The Hand that Feeds).

Knock Down The House is a Jubilee Films production, in association with Atlas Films and Artemis Rising, executive produced by Regina K. Scully, and co-executive produced by Chicago Media Project and Wavelength Productions.
