The First Step (2021)
“Van Jones, a progressive activist known for calling Donald Trump’s election “a whitelash” live on TV, controversially crosses party lines to win bipartisan support for criminal justice reform and a more humane response to the addiction crisis. Attempting to be a bridge builder in a time of extreme polarization takes him deep into the inner workings of a divisive administration, internal divisions within both parties, and the lives of activists fighting for their communities.” – Chesapeake Film Festival
