The President

29 Aug 20153 Sep 2015

Mohsen Makhmalbaf's latest film is a powerful political parable that combines sweet sentimentality and his characteristic sensitivity to the viewpoint of children with a harder, more brutal realism. The recently overthrown dictator of an anonymous country endeavours to shield his young grandson from both the reality of his deposition and the danger presented by a now vengeful people. A lyrical, moving and beautifully shot film from the iconic Iranian director.

The Director, Mohsen Makhmalbaf, France/Georgia/Germany/UK 2014, 119 mins, Georgian with English subtitles.
