(PresidentialHill.com)- Far-left squad member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest climate documentary, “To The End,” averaged only $80 per theater, according to The Daily Mail. The documentary reportedly covered the Green New Deal and climate change and took in just a total of $9,667, indicating that it was a huge flop.
“Fighting for change politically requires faith,” says Ocasio-Cortez in the trailer. She also said that combatting climate change is the “moonshot of our generation.”
The film, directed by Rachel Lears, reportedly launched in 120 theaters. Lears directed her 2019 “Knock Down the House” film which also followed AOC and the 2018 midterms. Around that time, AOC had been a rising star in the Democratic Party as a member of the “squad,” which is a small group of far-leftists.
She made headlines when she was one of the leaders to sponsor the Green New Deal, which is named Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal. The trillion-dollar environmental package failed in the Senate before it was even debated.
“Filmed over four years of hope and crisis, ‘To The End’ captures the emergence of a new generation of leaders and the movement behind the most sweeping climate change legislation in U.S. history,” says its promotional website, adding that the women starring in the film are working to give their generations a right to the future.
The film follows AOC and three other women, including Green activist Varshini Prakash, climate policy writer Rhiana Gunn-Wright, and political strategist Alexandra Rojas.
While the documentary flopped at the box office, it has received favorable reviews.
One RogerEbert.com review suggested that the documentary would inspire more Americans to take action, but also said that it did not “offer too clear a sense of what’s in the Green New Deal.”
“Instead, it’s about what a positive future these leaders could bring, especially if Congress gets their act together, and gets behind them,” critic Nick Allen.
