Each of the women featured in the documentary were endorsed by Justice Democrats, a progressive group. The documentary is set to be released next week. 

Ocasio-Cortez was the only one of the four candidates to win her race. She defeated Crowley in the June primary and was ultimately elected to Congress.

“For one of us to make it through, a hundred of us have to try," Ocasio-Cortez says in the trailer.

Ocasio-Cortez also promoted the documentary Monday on Twitter, where she shared the trailer.

"Before my primary, three women & I agreed to film our journey of trying to run for office without big money. Now, #KnockDownTheHouse hits Netflix & select theaters next week, May 1st," she tweeted. 

Alexandra Rojas, the executive director of Justice Democrats, said in a statement Monday that the film "does an amazing job portraying the blood, sweat, and tears involved in running a grassroots primary challenge when all the odds are stacked against you."

“I hope the footage from the early days of these campaigns encourages other leaders, especially progressive working-class women and women of color, to consider running for Congress. Even if it means taking on the machine," Rojas added.
