MAYOR PETE (Opening Night Film) - NewFest


A riveting and intimate documentary about Pete Buttigieg’s campaign to be the first openly gay U.S. president


East Coast Premiere.

A riveting documentary from award-winning filmmaker Jesse Moss (BOYS STATE), MAYOR PETE brings viewers inside Pete Buttigieg’s campaign to be the youngest U.S. president, providing unprecedented intimacy with the candidate, his husband Chasten, and their ambitious team.

From the earliest days of the campaign to his unlikely, triumphant victory in Iowa and beyond, this film reveals what really goes on inside a campaign for the highest office in the land – and the myriad ways it changes the lives of those at its center. Recently appointed as the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Buttigieg serves as the first openly LGBTQ+ Cabinet member in U.S. history.
