Synopsis & Film Details
Fresno Filmworks presents the Virtual Cinema engagement of the documentary “John Lewis: Good Trouble.” Featuring interviews and rare archival footage, the film looks at the Georgia congressman’s sixty-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health care reform, and immigration. Director Dawn Porter, who also directed “Trapped” and “Gideon’s Army,” uses present day interviews to explore Lewis’ childhood experiences and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In addition to interviews with Lewis’ family, Porter’s film also includes interviews with congressional colleagues and others who are inspirational in his life.
Immediately following the feature, there will be a pre-recorded discussion between Representative Lewis and Oprah Winfrey, filmed in May 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.
