This documentary chronicles the six-decade career of activist and politician John Lewis from his civil rights work alongside Martin Luther King, Jr., to the House of Representatives. 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, and could not be more relevant.
A portion of the proceeds will directly support BMFI staff when you rent John Lewis: Good Trouble through our site.
After you watch the film, tune in to this panel discussion featuring Freedom Riders Dr. Bernard Lafayette and Dr. Rip Patton in conversation with director Dawn Porter. This discussion was presented by the Freedom Rides Museum of Montgomery, Alabama, in partnership with the Capri Theatre.
