Burstein. It is targeted at today's 17-24 year-olds, many of whom will be voting for the first time in a presidential election in 2008. 18 in '08 features interviews with many of the most influential politicians of today, as well as popular culture figures, political activists, media commentators, and student leaders. 18 in '08 explains what is at stake for youth in the 2008 election, how decisions made in Washington today will affect young people for years to come, the issues and ideas that engage our generation, what turns us off, why are we so cynical about politics, the role of new media in engaging young voters, and candidates who have inspired youth. Fast-paced, entertaining, and thought-provoking, the film is ultimately a call to young people to overturn traditional under-representation in election campaigns, get involved in the political process, and vote. 18 in '08 will be connecting with major web portals, conducting a university tour, and a 50 state tour in the summer of 2008 to bring the film to forums with candidates, activists, students, and politicians, followed by voter registration. Screenings, house parties, and discussions will be conducted constantly through the 2008 election. Written by anonymous See less
