Gritty, funny, and surprisingly inspirational, the film goes behind-the-scenes in a rough-and-tumble campaign in Newark, N.J. It 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.
"An electrifying, suspenseful film, full of street-level political drama."
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"Vastly entertaining... Street Fight will keep you on the edge of your seat."
-John Anderson, Variety
