Why watch this film?

What does politics mean to teenagers? For many, it's a chore. For some, something abstract. For others, a goal to be pursued and improved. That's the case for the teenagers depicted in 'Boys State,' an exclusive documentary from Apple TV+ that tells the story of a group of young people coming together to simulate a representative government. From there, directors Amanda McBaine and Jesse Moss delve into the ramifications of this group and bring up pertinent questions about the act of doing politics. An essential and urgent production for those who like to debate about the world's political paths. Winner at Sundance.
