June Documentary - Street Fight - Cory Booker

Join us for the June documentary on Sunday afternoon, June 30. Doors open at 5:00 pm and we try to start the film promptly at 5:30. The event is in a local member's living room, and all are welcome. We ask that you bring a beverage and make an online donation to help fund our GOTV actvities.

Street Fight is a thrilling Academy Award®-nominated story of bare-knuckle politics in America. When a young unknown challenger named Cory Booker takes on the head of a powerful political machine, he discovers that sometimes elections are won and lost in the streets.

Gritty, funny, and surprisingly inspirational, the film goes behind-the-scenes in a rough-and-tumble campaign in Newark, N.J. It offers an intimate, unvarnished view of Booker before he became a U.S. Senator and regular fixture on national political talk shows.

Street Fight also explores the complex politics of race in an election that pits Spike Lee and Cornel West against Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and features Bill Bradley and Chris Christie.

Directed by three-time Oscar nominated documentary filmmaker, Marshall Curry, and winner of the Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival, the critically acclaimed film was called “the best American political documentary since The War Room” by the Washington Post.
