Raise Hell: The Life and 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 have proved prescient. Now it's up to us to raise hell!
Molly Ivins (1944-2007) garnered national acclaim for her perspective and unique voice as a reporter for newspapers including The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Texas Observer, and the Dallas Times Herald. During her tenure in Dallas, Ivins received two nominations for the Pulitzer Prize.
Raise Hell: The Life and Times of Molly Ivins is written, produced, and directed by Award-winning filmmaker and showrunner, Janice Engel. She has made numerous documentaries, non-fiction television specials and series including: Jackson Browne: Going Home (Cable Ace-Award), Ted Hawkins Amazing Grace (Rose D’Or Special Jury Prize) and the docu-series, Addicted (Prism Award.)
