Academy Award nominated documentary, "Street Fight", follows the bloody-knuckles race for mayor of Newark, N.J. between 32-year-old Cory Booker and four-term incumbent, Sharpe James. An urban David and Goliath story, the film chronicles the young man's struggle against the city's entrenched political machine, which uses strong-arm tactics to hold onto power. The battle sheds light on important questions about democracy, power, poverty and race. When the mayor accuses the Ivy League-educated challenger of not being "really black," the campaign forces voters to examine how we define race in America. Directed by Marshall Curry.
