With the 2020 Presidential Election less than 100 days away, Amazon studios announced that the Stacey Abrams documentary All In: The Fight for Democracy will make premiere in select theaters on September 9th with its global launch on Prime Video September 18th.
Stacey Abrams is the first Black woman to become the gubernatorial nominee for a major party in the United States. In 2018, she narrowly lost to Republican Brian Kemp, who was accused by Abrams of voter suppression activities after he refused to resign as secretary of state while campaigning for governor. All In: The Fight for Democracy will offer Abram’s perspectives on the laws and barriers to voting in the United States and will examine voter suppression in the U.S.
A joint statement from directors Liz Garbus and Lisa Cortés said, “With 100 days left until one of the most important elections in American history, we are thrilled to officially announce All In: The Fight for Democracy, which will tell a powerful and harrowing story of the fight for the right to vote, as well as arm citizens with the tools they need to protect this right. The film will be accompanied by an ambitious and visionary action plan to reach voters and educate them across the nation.”
Today, we are 100 days out from Election Day – a pivotal moment in our mission to protect our democracy – and we need to come together as a country and make sure every voice and vote is counted. The title All In: The Fight for Democracy speaks to the importance and necessity that every American has the right to have their voice be heard and their vote counted. We know that if our votes were not important, so many folks wouldn’t be working so hard to take our right to vote away.Stacey Abrams — Deadline
