State of Democracy Summit: Democracy on Film

Jesse Moss, Amanda McBaine, Ben Feinstein

Mar 25, 2021

Boys State, the winner of the Grand Jury Prize for documentary at Sundance Film Festival follows a thousand Texas high school seniors as they gather for an elaborate mock exercise in democracy: building their own state government. The film paints a complex portrait of democracy in action - it's pitfalls and advantages - and manages to plant seeds of hope at this fraught time for American democracy.
