Series Classification: G (General Programmes)

Millennial MP Chlöe Swarbrick challenges the establishment during the most important year of her political career.

In a momentous year, Aotearoa’s youngest MP vows to radically change the political status quo from within.

But behind the "OK Boomer" politician is a person. Chlöe must weigh up the pressures placed on her versus her innate desire to make a difference.

Learn what it’s truly like being a revolutionary member of parliament in a political system disconnected from those it represents.

OK Chlöe is part of a collection of eight Loading Docs short documentaries.
