Texas Focus: The Pushback

Enjoy a virtual Texas Focus Film Series screening of Kevin Ford’s The Pushback!

Purchase of a virtual screening ticket will give you access to view the film for 24 hours between September 21 – 25.

The story of two women of color running for public office, fighting against decades of institutional racism, and redefining what it means to be a Texan.

The first of two Latinas to represent Texas in Congress, Veronica Escobar, and the only African American woman to run for city council in Austin in 2018, Natasha Harper-Madison, lead a diverse group of voices across Texas. The battle over immigrant rights, the border wall, and troubled racial history form the backdrop to a film that explores the evolution of Texas and a vision for the future of the state.

A cinematic exploration of the Texas narrative, the Museum’s Texas Focus Film Series highlights stories by, for, and about Texans. As a SXSW Film Festival retrospective, this season’s selections highlight stories of unique individuals and their relationship with society.

Enhance your film viewing experience with an interview with director, Kevin Ford, producer, Emily Barclay Ford and film subject, Natasha Harper-Madison, launching September 21 on the Bullock Museum Medium page.
