At this critical moment in our history, stopping the climate crisis is a question of political courage, and the clock is ticking. A sequel to 2019’s KNOCK DOWN THE HOUSE, TO THE END follows the intersecting stories of four women of color who are key players in the rise of the Green New Deal—an ambitious plan to address climate change, and economic and racial justice in the process. The film’s protagonists—Varshini Prakash (Sunrise Movement), Alexandra Rojas (Justice Democrats), Rhiana Gunn-Wright (Roosevelt Institute), and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—are all visionary young women of color who are grappling with new challenges of leadership and power. Over three volatile years of crisis and upheaval, from street protests to the halls of Congress, the film tracks a historic shift in climate politics in the U.S. as these young leaders work together to defend their generation’s right to a future.
Through youth-led collective action, civil disobedience, campaigning for progressive candidates, and high-profile protests, the women and their teams work tirelessly to sound the alarm of the impending climate catastrophe. The clock is ticking. The world can’t wait.
