Join us on Tuesday, August 11 for an exclusive advance screening of the award-winning film Boys State, followed by a talkback exploring youth civic and political engagement.
The sensational winner of the Grand Jury Prize for documentary at this year's Sundance Film Festival, Boys State 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.
Facing History and Ourselves works across the globe to foster youth civic engagement by developing students’ critical thinking skills and empathy. Following the screening, we'll sit down with the filmmakers and other special guests to discuss youth engagement, American politics, and the future of our democracy.
