Knock Down The House is a Netflix’s documentary directed by Rachel Lears, showing four working-class American females running for Congress in the 2018 United States elections: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Amy Vilela, Cori Bush, and Paula Jean Swearengin.
Rather than a politically-driven platform, Knock Down The House tells a story of a pivotal moment in history, shifting the political narrative from an idea that seemed impossible to possible. We get the behind-the-scenes look on the challenges and triumphs each candidate experiences, shedding light on the urgency of a more equitable future.
Before Alexandria faced her opponent, Joe Crowley, who prides himself on being experienced and established since 1999, reminds herself:
“I am experienced enough to do this. I am knowledgeable enough to do this. I am prepared enough to do this. I am mature enough to do this. I am brave enough to do this.”
