Loudmouth

Gala

World Premiere

FEATURE | United States | 120 MINUTES | English | (No Subtitles) subtitles

LOUDMOUTH

New York, Documentary, Politics, Biography, Journalism, Black & African American Diaspora Stories

Josh Alexander’s Loudmouth documents the winding road that is Al Sharpton’s life story as an iconic activist and spiritual leader. Viewers peek under the fold and witness the unrestricted details of Sharpton’s development from an 8-year-old preacher to a (sometimes painted as controversial) civil rights figure. Along with his history in the public eye, the good and the bad, the film offers behind the scenes insight into Sharpton’s experience as a presidential candidate advisor and racial justice advocate during the volatile climate of 2020. 

Audiences will be drawn in by Sharpton’s depth of knowledge and unpublicized details about police brutality in the United States, in particular, New York. Scenes with Andrew Cuomo and other influential figures highlight what makes Sharpton so special as a storyteller and agitator. Viewers are introduced to a new side of the activist and politician, who many have mixed feelings about. Loudmouth makes one thing clear – there’s no one like him. —Shakira Refos
