Street Fight

Street Fight is a thrilling Academy Award®-nominated story of bare-knuckle politics in America. When a young unknown challenger named Cory Booker takes on the head of a powerful political machine, he discovers that sometimes elections are won and lost in the streets.

Gritty, funny, and surprisingly inspirational, the film goes behind-the-scenes in a rough-and-tumble campaign and offers an intimate, unvarnished view of Booker before he became a U.S. Senator and regular fixture on national political talk shows.

Street Fight also explores the complex politics of race in an election that pits Spike Lee and Cornel West against Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and features Bill Bradley and Chris Christie.

Directed by two-time Oscar nominated documentary filmmaker, Marshall Curry, and winner of the Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival, the critically acclaimed film was called “the best American political documentary since The War Room” by the Washington Post.
