THE PRESIDENT

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s ‘The President’ tells the story of a dictator who comes face to face with the people he previously subjugated. The president and his family rule their land with an iron fist, enjoying lives of luxury and leisure at the expense of their population’s misery. When a coup d’état overthrows his brutal rule and the rest of his family flees the country by plane, the president is suddenly left to care for his young grandson and forced to escape. Now the country’s most wanted fugitive, the president begins a perilous journey boy in a bid to reach a ship that will bring them to safety. Posing as street musicians and travelling alongside people who’ve suffered hugely under his rule, the fallen president and the innocent child will be exposed first-hand to the hardships that inspired unanimous hatred for the regime. ✮✮✮✮ "A gutsy and vivid parable" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
