The Progressive Forum presents Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins

Many events have been canceled or postponed due to coronavirus concerns. Please check with the organization before going to any event.

Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins radiantly captures the raucous wit, wisdom, and big heart of the beloved Molly Ivins, who grew up in Houston and went on to national prominence, with 400 newspapers carrying her column at the height of her popularity. This movie is a tonic during a time we need it. Her insight into Texas politics became particularly esteemed with the election of George W. Bush, or "Shrub" as she called him, about whom she quipped, "The next time I tell you someone from Texas should not be President of the United States, please pay attention."

There will be a post-screening Q&A with Houston film producer Carlisle Vandervoort and ACLU of Texas Executive Director Terri Burke.
