Knock Down the House will be available to stream on Netflix starting May 1, 2019.

The film certainly had a high-profile premiere at Sundance, where it won the Festival Favorite Award after its star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez - who had planned to go to Park City for the screening - but declined to attend amid the government shutdown.

In January, Ocasio-Cortez made similar statements in front of an audience at a New York City church, saying "millennials and Gen-Z and all these folks that come after us are looking up, and we're like, 'The world is going to end in 12 years if we don't address climate change, and. your biggest issue is how are we going to pay for it?'" "Now, #KnockDownTheHouse hits Netflix & select theaters next week, May 1st". It will give a close look at the experiences during the 2018 midterm elections that shifted the political landscape and marked many historical wins for women, in particular.

It's no coincidence that the film's focus is on not just women, but women who had no designs to become career politicians.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Thursday that she would support impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump after reading special counsel Robert Mueller's report. After Crenshaw attacked Omar and claimed that she said the 9/11 al-Qaeda attacks weren't terrorism-which Omar never said-Ocasio-Cortez rose to Omar's defense and called Crenshaw out on Twitter for having "the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan" with "completely out-of-context" quotes. Ocasio-Cortez is an inspiring, charismatic, and intelligent figure, and though she's the only one of the four candidates in this documentary to actually get elected, there's reason for hope. "I'm running because everyday Americans deserve to be represented by everyday Americans", she said.

Knock Down the House is directed by Rachel Lears. The streaming service paid a record-breaking $10 million for the film back in February.
