Frontrunners

Frontrunners

Available on Prime Video
Frontrunners follows four charming and idiosyncratic high school candidates as they run for Student Council President in one of the most competitive high schools in America - New York City's Stuyvesant. These teenage candidates face the same political issues as candidates of any age; picking the right running mates, shaking as many hands as possible, preparing for televised debates, impressing the pundits and journalistic community, addressing sensitive race-related issues and mobilizing an apathetic voter base. A smart and funny documentary that shows politicking and the pluralities of the US electoral system through an adolescent experience.
