TUESDAY, AUGUST 11 7PM ET / 4PM PT

Facing History and Ourselves, in partnership with Apple Original Films and A24, invites you to join us for an exclusive advance screening of the award-winning film Boys State, followed by a talkback exploring youth civic and political engagement.

RSVP HERE

ABOUT THE FILM

The sensational winner of the Grand Jury Prize for documentary at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Boys State is a wildly entertaining and continually revealing immersion into a week-long annual program in which a thousand Texas high school seniors gather for an elaborate mock exercise: building their own state government.

ABOUT THE TALKBACK

Facing History and Ourselves works across the globe to foster youth civic engagement by developing students’ critical thinking skills and empathy. Following the screening, we’ll sit down with the filmmakers, the film’s young stars, and other special guests to discuss youth engagement, American politics, and the future of our democracy.

BOYS STATE, an Apple Original Films and A24 release, will debut on Apple TV+ on Friday, August 14. Rated PG-13 for some strong language and thematic elements.

While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
