Join us on Sunday, July 12 at 4:00 pm PDT for a panel discussion about the film. The panel will feature the film’s director Dawn Porter and producer, Laura Michalchyshyn, Heather Booth, an organizer long associated with the DNC and NAACP; and Jessica Pierce, most recently worked as national chair of Black Youth Project 100, and as a leader of Generation Vote. The moderator will be long-time activist Peter Dreier, Professor of Politics at Occidental College.

JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Dawn Porter (TRAPPED, GIDEON’S ARMY), chronicles the life and career of the legendary civil rights activist and Democratic Representative from Georgia, and celebrates his 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform, and immigration. Featuring both rare archival footage and exclusive interviews with the late Congressman, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figured prominently in his life.


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.
