This film 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. “Raise Hell” is about the celebrated national political columnist and Texan who used her razor sharp wit to speak truth to power. Her 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.”

Tonight’s event is the 17th ANNIVERSARY of the Meaningful Movies in Wallingford… 17 years of neighbors coming together to learn about important matters by watching documentaries and engaging in community discussions. Thank you for participating with us!

More quotes by Molly Ivins:

“So keep fightin’ for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don’t you forget to have fun doin’ it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce.”

“I prefer someone who burns the flag and then wraps themselves up in the Constitution over someone who burns the Constitution and then wraps themselves up in the flag.”
