Ocasio-Cortez says she’ll ‘miss’ Sundance film premiere ‘due to complications’ from partial government shutdown


Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Saturday that she won’t be attending a premiere at the Sundance Film Festival “due to complications” from the partial government shutdown. It wasn’t clear at press time what those complications entailed.

The lawmaker wrote that she was “sad” to announce that she’d be missing the debut of “Knock Down the House,” made by Jubilee Films.

“For almost two years, a mom followed several women as we ran for Congress. I was one of them,” she tweeted. “This film was made, with love, for people.”

On Friday, President Trump signed a short-term spending bill to re-open the government, ending the longest partial federal government shutdown in U.S. history. The signing came after the measure passed the Senate and House, respectively.
