Childlike Politics on Global Voices

Please Vote For Me airs Sunday night on Global Voices on the WORLD Channel. Set in the city of Wuhan in central China, the film follows three 8-year-old elementary school students as they campaign for the coveted position of class monitor.

Viewers interested in the film should definitely take a look at this clip from This American Life. Host Ira Glass excerpts the doc and reflects on how quickly these third-grade kids devise and employ the same tactics used by adult politicians. Politics is indeed a contact sport, enjoy!
