Knock Down the House

Documentary follows four American women, insurgents running for Congress against powerful incumbents. With no political experience and no corporate donations behind them, the odds are hugely against the political outsiders, but one of them, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is about to pull off one of the biggest upsets in American political history and seize the spotlight of news media worldwide.

"This seamlessly edited and heart-wrenching character story captures these four women’s unlikely journey to inspire Americans to get fired up about the new faces of politics. Director Rachel Lears gives viewers intimate and unprecedented access to the first days of Ocasio-Cortez’s campaign, revealing the candidate’s fierce fight to be elected the country’s youngest member of Congress."
