JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Dawn Porter (TRAPPED, GIDEON’S ARMY), chronicles the life and career of the legendary civil rights activist and Democratic Representative from Georgia. Using interviews and rare archival footage, JOHN LEWIS: GOOD TROUBLE chronicles John Robert 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.
“Engaging portrait of the Civil Rights icon.”
“The film is both a tribute and a warning – it’s part John Lewis’ greatest hits and part civics lesson about today.”
– The Wrap
“Good Trouble” couldn’t be more timely. Yet it feels strangely incomplete, and finds Lewis, 80, looking back over his life even as there’s still important work being done.”
– Detroit News
“Perhaps the most striking aspect of the film is how prophetic it is.”
– Associated Press
“Good Trouble shows that Lewis has never lost sight of the principles that are essential to his country’s survival and well-being.”
– Time Magazine
