Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a Democrat from New York looks on during a town hall event in New York U.S. on Wednesday

It debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this past January, where it won the Audience Award for U.S. Documentary and the Festival Favorite Award, and it also enjoyed a nice reception at the South by Southwest Film Festival last month. The documentary will be available for streaming on May 1, exclusively on Netflix.

Ocasio-Cortez, 29, took to Twitter on Monday to share a brief tidbit about the film alongside the trailer. "Now, #KnockDownTheHouse hits Netflix & select theaters next week, May 1st".

Now a new Netflix documentary will provide an inside look at how she became the youngest woman to ever serve in Congress. Knock Down the House follows Ocasio-Cortez and three other women - Amy Vilela, Cori Bush, and Paula Jean Swearengin - as they ran for office previous year.

Check out the Knock Down the House trailer and poster below. While she admitted to not initially seeing herself tackling a career in politics, she explained what drove her to do so. "Americans aren't asking for a lot".

All 6 people aboard small plane killed in Texas crash
Six people died in a small plane crash Monday in central Texas during a landing attempt, officials said. The Texas Department of Public Safety says the pilot and all five passengers were killed.

It's a good time for political documentaries.

Jake Howell said in our review, "Rachel Lears' Knock Down the House is a fun, emotionally powerful, inspiring look at the incredible wave of would-be politicians that sought, in 2018, to challenge status quo Democrats and enact meaningful change-all while refusing money from Wall Street fat cats and big business super PACs". Netflix paid $10 million to secure the rights to the film.

When tragedy struck her family in the midst of the financial crisis, Bronx-born Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to work double shifts in a restaurant to save her home from foreclosure. Yesterday the Sundance Institute announced Knock Down the House as the victor of the Festival Favorite Award, selected by audience votes from the 121 features screened at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
