“This is a damn good movie that needs to be seen by as many audiences as possible because it really gets down the emotional core of trying to make change in your country.”

David Voight, In the Seats

“SURGE is a beautiful and impactful film that will inspire girls and women and all people to get activated at the grassroots, use their voices and yes, see themselves as elected leaders. And while it’s vital that we must stay home to stay safe right now, we can’t forget that there is a critically important election in November.”
