ABOUT TEXAS, USA

Andrew Morgan’s latest feature documentary film, TEXAS, USA, is out today, October 6, 2023 in wide digital release with cast-attended premiere events that happened in NYC, Washington DC, Austin, and will be happening in Marfa and Houston, Texas.

 

Told through the stories of a group of organizers, activists, and candidates, TEXAS, USA is a film about the fight for real and lasting change in Texas and beyond, featuring candidates and organizers who never give up on our democracy. This is an underdog story about those who are challenging decades of right-wing power across the state and around the country. The film showcases what it takes to fight for a stronger democracy, and in the words of Barbara Jordan, to close the gap between the reality and the promise of America. The film showcases a group of people who challenge traditional views of Texas and its politics; together, they are young, diverse, and progressive.

 

The film features characters from across Texas, including then-candidates Greg Casar, Beto O’Rourke, and Lina Hidalgo. It also includes Dallas-based organizer Brianna Brown of the Texas Organizing Project, and Austin-based advocates Tory Gavito of Way To Win and Adri Pérez, one of the most recognizable trans advocates in the state. Taken together, these characters paint a picture of a new kind of Texas politician: young, progressive, and deeply connected to Texas’ Latino culture and history.

 

TEXAS, USA is available on as of today, October 6, 2023. There will be an invite-only premiere tonight in Houston and tomorrow in Marfa.
