Manship Virtual Cinema: John Lewis: Good Trouble. Available to stream until August 15th

Presented by Magnolia Pictures

Celebrate the extraordinary work and legacy of Representative John Lewis, and support the Manship Theatre, by renting and watching from the comfort of your own home.

Synopsis: Using interviews and rare archival footage, JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE chronicles Lewis’ 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration. Using present-day interviews with Lewis, now 80 years old, 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.

Director: Dawn Porter
Produced by: Laura Michalchyshyn, Dawn Porter, Erika Alexander and Ben Arnon

*Immediately following the feature, there’s a pre-recorded discussion between Congressman 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.

Additionally, all ticket-buyers are welcome to stream an amazing free panel discussion hosted by the Freedom Rides Museum and featuring Freedom Riders Dr. Bernard Lafayette and Dr. Rip Patton in conversation with director Dawn Porter. The video can be accessed through the ticketing link and here:
