The 2018 midterms saw a record number of first-time female candidates who ran for office and won. In a documentary investigation of this shift, three congressional candidates in Texas, Indiana, and Illinois serve as case studies. As each looks to flip their red districts to blue, the filmmakers explore whether this trend is a moment in women's political history, or a true movement.Written by
Surge tells the story of the surge in women running for Congress in 2018 by following three women who did so. There are many powerful moments where it actually brought tears to my eyes because it was so moving. This documentary reveals that this surge was more than a moment in history. It was and still is a movement! I highly recommend Surge!
