Mayor Pete Documentary directed by Jesse Moss
Pete Buttigieg had a remarkable journey in 2020 from a rising Democratic star as a mayor of an Indiana town to a U.S. Presidential candidate to now as the Secretary of Transportation under President Joe Biden’s administration. Director Jesse Moss was with Buttigieg for every step from his meteoric rise and decline of his Presidential campaign as he documented in Mayor Pete as an Amazon Original.
Here is the synopsis of the documentary:
Mayor Pete brings viewers inside Pete’s campaign to be the youngest U.S. President, providing an 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 to U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Buttigieg serves as the first openly LGBTQ Cabinet member in U.S. history.
