Private Project

Hail Yourself, America!

In 2017, podcaster and comedian Ben Kissel (Last Podcast on the Left) ran for Brooklyn Borough President to stand up for the residents in his neighborhood. Facing multiple challenges from New York City's political establishment, Ben and his team documented their campaign to show that by running for office in the country's biggest city, even a "tall man for the small man" can make a big difference!
