A Stacey Abrams-produced documentary about voting rights has finally been given a release date.
Amazon Studios has set a Sept. 9 theater release for “All In: The Fight for Democracy.” The film will also be released on Amazon Prime Video on Sept. 18.
“Today, we are 100 days out from Election Day — a pivotal moment in our mission to protect our democracy — and we need to come together as a country and make sure every voice and vote is counted,” said Abrams in a statement.
“The title ‘All In: The Fight for Democracy’ speaks to the importance and necessity that every American has the right to have their voice be heard and their vote counted. We know that if our votes were not important, so many folks wouldn’t be working so hard to take our right to vote away.”
The film takes a close look at voter suppression in the United States. Abrams lost out to Republican Secretary of State Brian Kemp won the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election by defeating Abrams by just under 55,000 votes. The election was plagued by allegations of voter suppression by Kemp, many Georgians considering Abrams, the rightful winner.
“With 100 days left until one of the most important elections in American history, we are thrilled to officially announce ‘All In: The Fight for Democracy’ which will tell a powerful and harrowing story of the fight for the right to vote as well as arm citizens with the tools they need to protect this right,” Garbus and Cortés said. “The film will be accompanied by an ambitious and visionary action plan to reach voters and educate them across the nation.”
