NAME OF FILM: KNOCK DOWN THE HOUSE
DIRECTOR(S): Rachel Lears

SYNOPSIS: Knock Down the House captures AOC’s historic campaign in vivid detail, following her all the way from the ice machine of the bar she worked at to the steps of the US Capitol. Along the way, we also hear the stories of several other long shots that dared to take on the establishment in the 2018 midterms. Beware: the ending might provoke your best happy-crying face. Because more than anything, this inspiring journey reminds us that no matter how unlikely or inexperienced you are, if you’re ready to work your tail off, you can bring real change to this country.
