See AOC running for Congress
14 April 2019 | by sfdphdSee all my reviews

This excellent documentary showcases four women running for office in the 2018 election. We are now all familiar with AOC but at the time of shooting the film she was just a bartender from the Bronx. Fascinating to see her developing a political style and joining a movement to change the system. All the women in the film are amazing and make great representatives. We need them and others to make a difference!
