Before Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, there was a group of activists called Justice Democrats who were looking for promising candidates that could primary Democratic incumbents in Congress. They are looking for change.
The film crew recorded many of the scenes prior to the 2018 elections including interviews with the candidates and their opinions. By showcasing the candidates, Netflix’s Knock Down the House is one of the most interesting behind the scenes political documentary. I think the best quote from the documentary was “after 2016, nothing is for certain.”
This documentary really shines a light on the Ocasio-Cortez as a “rising star” and her opinions and activities going into the primary. It’s fascinating.
