Dir. Dawn Porter. 2020, 96 mins. With John Lewis. Award-winning filmmaker Dawn Porter’s John Lewis: Good Trouble
is a rousing and definitive chronicle of John Lewis’s 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform, and immigration. Porter captures present-day observational footage of the now 80-year-old congressman—who’s still in office and still in action—along with candid interviews with Lewis, his family, friends, and colleagues. Rare archival footage and photographs provide unprecedented access to his childhood experiences, his inspiring family, and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957.
