The sensational winner of the Grand Jury Prize for documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival is a wildly entertaining and continually revealing immersion into a week-long annual programme in which a thousand Texas high school seniors gather for an elaborate mock exercise: building their own state government.

The film will be preceded by a live introduction and a live Q&A with the two directors Jesse Moss and Amanda McBaine.
Watching these teens vie for fake political power is a revelation about what’s gone wrong in the modern U. S. government: It’s like The War Room meets Model U. N.
