I had the pleasure of meeting Jason Pollock last year. Mr. Pollock is a rising film director. He was in Atlantic City to cover the Sixth Ward City Council Campaign of Ytit Chauhan. Variety Magazine features this documentary:
Moore backs ‘Candidate’
Filmmaker stands behind feature
By DADE HAYES
‘The Youngest Candidate’ will screen at Michael Moore’s film fest in Michigan.
Michael Moore’s endorsement makes it more likely that ‘The Youngest Candidate’ will be picked up by a distributor.
The key difference with “The Youngest Candidate” is that it’s about teens
running for elected office, not class president. The film follows four 2007
candidates: one who ran for mayor of Hartford, Conn.; another who ran for city
council in Memphis, Tenn.; a school board candidate in Hampton Township, Pa.;
and a City Council hopeful in Atlantic City, N.J.
Hopefully, more young adults will get both educated on political issues and theory and involved in the process.
