Surge - best documentary!
26 September 2020 | by szvvbinehwSee all my reviews

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!
