Knock Down the House
Knock Down the House is a Netflix documentary following four female US Democrats, including Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, during the 2018 midterms.
The documentary sees a young bartender from the Bronx, a coal miner's daughter in West Virginia, a grieving mother in Nevada, and a registered nurse in Missouri build a grassroots movement of insurgent candidates to challenge seasoned politicians with powerful friends in Congress.
