I enjoyed watching this student produced, five minute film. I really like the concept. It''s very creative that they asked young children for their opinions on politics. Children deserve a "voice" and are definitely heard in this student film. What's most appealing is its relevancy in terms of our current political environment. It is very interesting to me to hear what these kids have to say about the new president. Any child can relate to seeing these children express their opinion and can learn and grasp from seeing viewpoints expressed by their peers. This film flows easily. The viewer won't get lost. It is very coherent and understandable. The vocabulary and production are well suited for a youth audience as well. The production values are quite good. I commend this 10-year-old filmmaker for clear audio and well lit, in focus video. The interviews are well set up as far as the camera angles go and the productions values are high enough for exposition on the big screen. This definitely would be suitable for any youth festival, especially one that addresses current events. I recommend this film to kids ages 6 to 12 and give it 4 out of 5 stars.

Written and directed by 10 year old, Cameron Scout Bontrager. Cameron wanted the world to know that the youth have a voice too. The interviews reveal children's thoughts on the recent election and the upcoming 4 years. They are very light-hearted, meaningful and sometimes humorous.
You too can become a film critic!
