A brand new trailer for the upcoming documentary Kid Candidate has been released, showcasing some of what to expect when it releases early next month.
Kid Candidate tells the real-life story of Hayden Pedigo, a 24-year old experimental musician, and his unlikely run for city council in Amarillo, Texas, after his Harmony Korine-inspired spoof campaign video went viral. After the viral video’s popularity caused Pedigo to become more known, he decided to try and actually pursue a seat in office. The documentary follows his efforts to do so and the many obstacles he encounters along the way.
The documentary had its world premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival, where it received critical acclaim from both critics and viewers alike.
