JUNETEENTH, LOUDMOUTH WILL MAKE ITS WORLD PREMIERE DOCUMENTARY FEATURING REV. AL SHARPTON—
Film explores the rise of the Civil Rights leader, his more than 40 years of advocacy, and continued fight against racial injustice across the United States
New York, NY (Monday, April 19, 2022) – Loudmouth, the documentary chronicling Rev. Al Sharpton’s rise from pastoral prodigy to a national civil rights figure, has been announced as the closing piece at the Tribeca Film Festival. Rev. Sharpton, Founder and President of the National Action Network, will take part in a conversation after the world premiere.
Since bursting into the headlines in New York City in the late 1980s, preacher and activist Rev. Sharpton has been at the center of the national conversation around race. In the aftermath of George Floyd’s horrific murder in 2020, the veteran civil rights leader has further expanded the reach of his powerful bullhorn against America’s deafening complacency in the fight against racial injustice — amplifying the ugly truths about the ongoing impact of structural racism on this nation many would prefer to ignore. The film features never-before-seen footage and unprecedented access. Written, directed, and produced by Josh Alexander. Produced by Daniel J. Chalfen, Mike Jackson, and Kedar Massenburg.
