Synopsis: Available June 8th Only! Available in the state of Oregon only.
They flipped the House in 2018. Now they’re back in 2020. Follow the suburban women who were activated after the 2016 election as they are schooled by activists from Birddog Nation, including Ady Barkan, a dying father with ALS who is fighting for democracy with his last breath, and Ana Maria Archila, a sexual assault survivor who confronts Senator Jeff Flake on an elevator during Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. The leaders of Birddog Nation set the women on a path deeper and more radical than they ever imagined. Are they the key to another Blue Wave in 2020?

There is a famous Margaret Mead quote, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” It captures why I made Birddog Nation. I filmed a group of newly minted, mostly female activists who were part of a nationwide surge in activism after the 2016 election. My group learned from the pros – activists who’d been fighting for justice and equality for decades – and they kicked butt in 2018. I want their story to inspire hope and activism as we face the most consequential election in our lifetime.
