Screened September 6–October 11, 2019

Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins tells the story of media firebrand Molly Ivins, six feet of Texas trouble who took on the Good Old Boy corruption wherever she found it. Her razor sharp wit left both sides of the aisle laughing, and craving ink in her columns. She knew the Bill of Rights was in peril, and said “Polarizing people is a good way to win an election and a good way to wreck a country.” Molly’s words remain prescient. 

Official Selection: SXSW, Sundance Film Festival

A Magnolia release.


A film by Janice Engel

Smart and entertaining, just like its subject.”

The Hollywood Reporter

The director Janice Engel gives Raise Hell such momentum — it’s a whoosh of a movie — that you are quickly swept up in its sights and sounds.
