Screening of Waking the Sleeping Giant: The Making of a Political Revolution
Waking the Sleeping Giant: The Making of a Political Revolution returns to Denver after its sold out performance at the Sie and after screenings across the United States and Canada!
This award-winning documentary film tells the story of the U.S. presidential election in 2016 and the effort to build a reenergized progressive political movement, grappling with the urgent question of “where do we go from here?” From the campaign trail with Bernie Sanders to a local race in the failing rural West Virginia economy, from a mass sit-in on the U.S. Capitol steps to racially charged police commission hearings in Los Angeles, Waking the Sleeping Giant makes sense of this remarkable moment in American politics and the challenges ahead.
Producer/director Jacob Smith will be on hand for a post-film Q&A.
