This film was last shown on 29 October 2020
This sensational winner of the Grand Jury Prize for documentary at Sundance Film Festival is a wildly entertaining and continually revealing immersion into a week-long annual program in which a thousand Texas high school seniors gather for an elaborate mock exercise: building their own state government.
Startling and compelling, this timely documentary offers a remarkable window into contemporary US politics, and the deepening divisions tearing up the next generation.
