Boys State is a 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. This captivating documentary about the 2018 Texas Boys State civics exercise closely tracks the escalating tensions arising within a contentious gubernatorial race: from electioneering and platform development, to dramatic debates, impeachment threats, and, inevitably, the backroom skullduggery behind all campaigns. "[Boys State] offers an alternately encouraging and terrifying look at tomorrow's politicians." (Variety) Winner of the U.S. Grand Jury Prize for Documentary at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
