BOBBY KENNEDY FOR PRESIDENT

Documentary, Drama
The eye-opening and transformative four-part docuseries Bobby Kennedy for President utilizes rare and never-before-seen archival footage – digitized here for the first time – to transport us to a turbulent and dynamic era, letting Bobby's voice and viewpoint be the guiding force. With new interviews with RFK confidantes and staffers including William Vanden Heuvel, Rep. John Lewis, Paul Schrade, Marian Wright Edelman, Peter Edelman, and Dolores Huerta, acclaimed director Dawn Porter (Trapped, Spies of Mississippi, Gideon's Army) reveals anew what America gained and what it lost in the life, vision, politics, and hope of Bobby Kennedy.

After the screening: A conversation with director Dawn Porter, Ambassador William vanden Heuvel, Kerry Kennedy, and Juan Romero. Moderated by Joan Walsh.
