dir. Dawn Porter, 2020, 96 min
Using interviews and rare archival footage, this documentary chronicles the late John Lewis’s 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration. Through interviews with an eighty-year-old Lewis, filmmaker Dawn 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 figure prominently in his life.
Cosponsored by the ALANA Cultural Center as part of MLK Week.
