Netflix pays with 10 million dollars the highest amount ever for a documentary

Netflix has recently become the rights of the political documentary Knock Down the House in hands. The streaming service has $ 10 million paid (more than 8.8 million euros), which is the most expensive purchase of a documentary ever, writes Deadline.

Knock Down the House is a documentary about four women and their struggle for a place in the House of Representatives in America to conquer. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cori Bush, Amy Vilela, and Paula Jean Swearengin had hoped for a place to get hold of, but Ocasio-Cortez (29) is the only one that was elected during the midterm elections last year. Thus she became the youngest congressman ever.

The documentary, which the director was in the hands of Rachel Lears, premiered at the American Sundance Film Festival. Knock Down the House was originally funded with the help of a fundraising campaign.

On the American festival was also Leaving Neverland, the documentary about Michael Jackson, to see.
