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!
