Mayor Pete

  Jesse Moss

  United States     96 minutes

Synopsis

In the great tradition of electioneering films such as The War Room and Knock Down the House, Mayor Pete brings viewers inside Pete Buttigieg’s mission to be the youngest and first openly LGBTQ U.S. president, providing an unprecedented intimacy with the candidate, his husband Chasten, and their ambitious team. From the earliest days on the campaign trail to his unlikely, triumphant victory in Iowa and beyond, the film reveals the strategizing and suspense of pursuing the highest office in the land–and the myriad ways it changes the lives of those at its center. From Jesse Moss, the award-winning co-director of Boys State, Mayor Pete is an inspiring story of fighting for what you believe in and staying true to who you are.
