STREET FIGHT, the Academy Award® Nominated Documentary About Cory Booker’s Rough-and-Tumble Campaign Returns to NETFLIX on Sept. 1

12:30 PM

Just in time for the dirtiest presidential election in memory "Street Fight," which for years has only been available on DVD and in theaters, goes up on Netflix on September 1 and also is available on iTunes and Amazon Instant Video.

"Street Fight" is the thrilling Academy Award® nominated story of bare-knuckle politics in America. 

When a young unknown challenger named Cory Booker (today U.S. Senator from New Jersey) takes on the head of a powerful political machine, he discovers that sometimes elections are won and lost in the streets.

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.

Gritty, funny, and surprisingly inspirational, Street Fight goes behind-the-scenes in a rough-and-tumble campaign in Newark, N.J. 

And 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 pitted Spike Lee and Cornel West against Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, and features other national figures such as Bill Bradley and Chris Christie.
“I'm really glad to see the film available again for audiences,” Curry said. “It’s a story that reveals a lot about the health of democracy in America. In the middle of this bare-knuckles campaign season it’s also a refreshing reminder about the importance of fighting a good fight while still keeping your soul.”
