Oscar® Winning Director Jonathan Demme's Jimmy Carter Man From Plains is a peerless, beautifully crafted portrait of president Jimmy Carter. The film allows Mr. Carter's recent book tour in which he promotes his latest and most controversial book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid. Praised and Vilifies in equal measure, Carter remains steadfast in his belief that Israel's policies in the Occupied Territories are unjust and counter-productive. A master of the documentary form Demme reveals a complex and often surprising individual who deserves to be listened to. Who with the gusto and determination of a youngster, criss-crosses the country to get his message across, and when the ensuing media onslaught begins, and his credibility and judgement are called into question, rises elegantly to the challenge. Jimmy Carter Man From Plains explores both the private and public sides of Jimmy Carter, whose intense sense of justice compels him to pursue, with undiminished energy and hope, his lifelong and deeply spiritual vision of reconciliation and peace.
