The eye-opening and transformative documentary series utilizes rare and never-before-seen archival footage — much of it digitized for the first time — to transport us to a turbulent and dynamic era, letting Bobby’s voice and viewpoint be the guiding force. Bobby Kennedy for President also features new interviews with RFK confidantes and staffers including William Vanden Heuvel, Dolores Huerta, Rep. John Lewis, Harry Belafonte, Paul Schrade, Marian Wright Edelman, and Peter Edelman.
Porter said this of his role in directing the documentary:
“I am honored that Netflix entrusted me with a story of this scale. Bobby Kennedy remains one of the most important and influential figures in American political history, and we all felt that there was no better time to study his life and legacy. We take care to closely examine his transformation from law-and-order leader to a trailblazer with a progressive focus on civil rights and social justice in a tumultuous time for the country. I gravitate to making films that shed a light on truth and justice, and RFK’s story inspires me personally, and has helped me grow as a filmmaker and a citizen.”
Bobby Kennedy for President is executive produced by Laura Michalchyshyn and Dawn Porter, Dave Sirulnick, Justin Wilkes, Jon Kamen, Nestan Berhrans, and Gunnar Deddio. The project was produced by RadicalMedia, Trilogy Films, and LooksFilm.
Bobby Kennedy for President will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 25 and will launch globally on Netflix on April 27.
