Featuring:Jimmy Carter

The Documentaries of Demme (+1): A Tribute - We're playing seven of our favourite documentaries by the great Jonathan Demme (with one special bonus).

Since his tenure as President of the United States, Jimmy Carter dedicated his life to humanitarian work and advocacy. In Jonathan Demme's Man from Plains filmed during Carter's 2004 book tour for Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid we get a vivid impression of the man's unceasing energy and commitment to a life of service and creating change. Whether it's campaigning for peace between Israel and Palestine or bringing to light America?s own injustices to New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, or speaking out against Trump at the age of 92, Carter is always putting his beliefs into action, much to Demme's admiration in this warm and thoughtful portrait.
