Follow the Leader

Event Description:

The Mary B. Martin School of the Arts, in cooperation with South Arts 2012-13 Southern Circuit of Independent Filmmakers, presents Follow the Leader, a documentary film.

Follow the Leader
is a real-life coming-of-age story of three traditional American boys with Presidential dreams. As 16-year-olds, high school Class Presidents Ben, D.J. and Nick are all conservatives who plan to continue leading their peers as President someday. Over three life-changing years, they split into Republican, Democratic and Independent camps as each reconsiders his lofty ambitions. Growing up at a critical moment for America as well, their lives force us all to rethink our assumptions about tomorrow’s leaders, and the impact of 9/11 and President Obama’s election. As shocking as Jesus Camp, as revealing as American Teen, and as funny as SpellboundFollow the Leader is the true story of what “change” means for three “young leaders” who feel destined to lead the world.

Following a screening of the film, Director/Producer/Camera/Editor Jonathan Levitt and the audience will engage in a discussion about the film. A reception with the filmmaker follows.

The 2012-13 Southern Circuit is a program of South Arts. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and local partner organizations.
