charlieuniformtango has collaborated on Director Gretchen Stoeltje’s compelling new documentary, Shouting Down Midnight, which premiered at SXSW 2022, March 12, 2022. The film chronicles former Texas state senator Wendy Davis’ 2013 abortion filibuster and its impact on those still fighting today to protect women’s rights. Early reviews have been consistently powerful: "Thoughtful," "heartfelt," "absorbing," "informative, "ardent…"

“It’s an important film. All of us at Tango were honored to partner on the making of it,” said Keith Munley, charlieuniformtango Austin Executive Producer. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to work with the film’s director and producers to help tell the story of this historic moment. It really was a labor of love for all of us. Nick Patronella and Artie Peña spent all of February working on the color and sound. Nick just welcomed his second child, daughter Layla, and started the sound edit from home – usually with Layla on his lap. The challenge of any documentary is to find ways to convey the inherent power of Truth. This film does that: The scene at the end, when the cheering, chanting crowd helps an exhausted Wendy Davis make it past the filibuster’s midnight deadline, still gets me every time.”
