About the Film


Jimmy Carter Man From Plains is an intimate, surprising encounter with President Jimmy Carter. Following the path of Mr. Carter's controversial book tour for Palestine—Peace Not Apartheid, Academy Award®-winning director Jonathan Demme reveals a complex individual who, with the gusto and determination of a youngster, crisscrosses the country to get his message across, even as that message creates a media onslaught in which his credibility and judgement are called into question.
