Using interviews and rare archival footage, John Lewis: Good Trouble chronicles Lewis’ 60-plus years of social activism and legislative action on civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health-care reform and immigration. Using present-day interviews with Lewis, now 79 years old, Porter explores his childhood experiences, his inspiring family and his fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. In addition to her interviews with Lewis and his family, Porter’s primarily cinéma verité film also includes interviews with political leaders, Congressional colleagues, and other people who figure prominently in his life.
“Good Trouble shows that Lewis has never lost sight of the principles that are essential to his country’s survival and well-being.” TIME Magazine
“this heartfelt documentary on the life of John Lewis – which could have the alternate title, “The Little Giant” – is both deserved and timely.” REELING REVIEWS
