Jimmy Carter: Man From Plains
Release Date: October 26th, 2007
PG|2 hr. 6 min.
Filmmaker Jonathan Demme trails former President Jimmy Carter on the promotional tour for his 2006 book "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid." From small towns to network talk shows, Carter offers his views on the Middle East peace process while contending with a media machine that frequently distorts those views. While critics condemn his comparison of the situation in Palestine to the apartheid of South Africa, Carter responds to their barbs with beguiling equanimity and customary thoughtfulness.
