Having already made its premiere earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, Rachel Lears’s documentary Knock Down the House will soon be making its way over to Netflix.

The award-winning docu spotlights four progressive women and their campaigns during the 2018 midterm elections including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (New York), Cori Bush (Missouri), Amy Vilela (Nevada), and Paula Jean Swearengin (West Virginia). Though most of us know the outcome of what happened, the film focuses on the journey and how these four powerful women managed to challenge the Democratic establishment.

The film went on to win the Audience Award for US Documentary and Festival Favorite Award at Sundance. Look for Knock Down the House to arrive on Netflix May 1.
