*** Harlem Special Advance Screening ***
In anticipation of the 2020 presidential election, ALL IN: THE FIGHT FOR DEMOCRACY examines the often overlooked, yet insidious issue of voter suppression in the United States. The film interweaves personal experiences with current activism and historical insight to expose a problem that has corrupted our democracy from the very beginning. With the perspective and expertise of Stacey Abrams, the former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, the documentary offers an insider’s look into laws and barriers to voting that most people don’t even know are threats to their basic rights as citizens of the United States.
ALL IN is directed by Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning filmmaker Liz Garbus and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Lisa Cortés. Producers are Garbus, Cortés, Dan Cogan and Stacey Abrams
The film will be released in U.S. cinemas on September 9, 2020 and worldwide on Amazon Prime Video on September 18, 2020.
The release is timed ahead of National Voter Registration Day of September 22.
