John Lewis: Good Trouble Trailer

"Not just say something, do something! Get in trouble, good trouble, necessary trouble." Magnolia Pictures has unveiled an official trailer for the documentary John Lewis: Good Trouble, which was supposed to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this year. It is the latest feature made by the talented, award-winning doc filmmaker Dawn Porter (of Gideon's Army, Spies of Mississippi, Trapped), and the film explores the Georgia representative's 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health care reform, and immigration. Built around present-day interviews with Lewis, now 79 years old, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. He is a legendary politician, activist, civil rights leader, and American hero who deserves all the love and attention and acclaim. He is forever an inspiration to all who fight for equality.

Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Dawn Porter's doc John Lewis: Good Trouble, from YouTube:

Interesting looking doco. John is always great in interviews but I don't know much about his history.
