Following the path of Mr. Carter’s recent 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, criss-crosses the country to get his message across, even as that message creates a media onslaught in which his credibility and judgment are called into question. ‘Jimmy Carter Man from Plains’ explores both the private and public sides of Jimmy Carter, whose intense sense of justice compels him to pursue, with undiminished energy and hope, his lifelong and deeply spiritual vision of reconciliation and peace.
Jonathan Demme is an American director, screenwriter and producer born in 1944. His first film success was Melvin and Howard (1980).

Afterwards he directed another winner, Philadelphia (1992). In addition to fiction hits, Demme made a series of documentary films such as: Neil Young Trunk Show (2009), New Home Movies From the Lower 9th Ward (2007), Neil Young: Heart of Gold (2006), Stop Making Sense (1984, about a Talking Heads concert).
