LETTERS TO THE PRESIDENT + Panel Discussion

Discussion including C4 News International Editor Linsey Hilsum
Dir: Peter Lom
Iran / Greece / 2009 / 72mins

With unique and unparalleled access, this film explores Iranian President Ahmadinejad's populism. It follows the President on his trips around rural Iran and films at the Presidential Letter Writing Center, which claims to have received more than ten million requests for help from ordinary Iranians. Revealing how propaganda, bureaucracy and unfulfilled promises are the answers to most letters to the President, the film creates a heart-wrenching portrait of daily life in contemporary Iran.
