About Movie Night: Movie Night is a one-night nationwide event in which a new independent film will "screen" online at a set time, followed by an interactive live stream Q&A where viewers can submit questions to the filmmaker. Every audience member who buys a "ticket" to watch the online screening will be able to select the local independent cinema they want to receive the proceeds of their purchase (this is where you select The Little!), just as if they were buying the ticket at your cinema in person, as well as make a donation.

About the Film:

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 80 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.
