The Pennsylvania Premiere of the Award-Winning PBS Documentary
FOLLOW THE LEADER
plus live Q&A with Milford participant Nick Troiano & Director Jonathan Goodman Levitt Raffle prizes and complimentary reception at the Delmonico Room in the Hotel Fauchere to follow.
Nick Troiano's political journey began as a student at Delaware Valley High School in Milford, PA. Over the next three years, his experiences leaving Pike County to study and get involved in politics in Washington were captured for the documentary FOLLOW THE LEADER.
About the film:
FOLLOW THE LEADER is “a real-life coming-of-age story for political junkies” (Education Week) that’s “like Michael Apted’s '7 Up' series” (Filmmaker Magazine). It charts the lives of sixteen-year-old high school class presidents Ben, D.J., and Nick as they finish high school and begin college. All initially conservatives, they each plan to continue leading their peers along with the rest of the country someday. Over three life-changing years, they split into Republican, Democratic and Independent camps as each reconsiders his lofty ambitions – and rethinks what he truly believes. Watch the trailer here.
The screening will be followed by a live Q&A with local resident and potential Congressional candidate Nick Troiano and Filmmaker Jonathan Goodman Levitt. Raffle prizes included in the ticket price will also be awarded. Ticket holders will then be treated to free appetizers at a reception a short walk from the theatre at the Delmonico Room in the Hotel Fauchere. Drinks and meals will be available for purchase.
At the reception, contributions to Nick's Congressional Exploratory Committee are welcome, with checks made out to "America Deserves Better." Signed DVDs of Follow the Leader will also be available for purchase at $25.
