The President

Makhmalbaf and his screenwriter wife, Marziyeh Meshkiny, have crafted a parableabout power, corruption and chaos that resonates across contemporary Eurasia.Drawing on Georgian backdrops and actors, the director explores the collapse of tyranny and its bloody aftermath through the eyes of the dictator's grandson, who questions each act with innocence that reframes the lies, the struggles for power, and even the fear underpinning their flight from power and search for security. Gold Hugo for Best Film, Chicago Film Festival.
