LAST CHANCE!   Ticket sales end Friday Oct. 23 (you have 3 days to watch from the time you purchase a ticket).

If it hadn’t been for a bottle of scotch and a late-night visit from musician Greg Allman, Jimmy Carter might never have been elected the 39th President of the United States.   This fascinating documentary charts the mostly forgotten story of how Carter, a lover of all types of music, forged a tight bond with musicians Willie Nelson, the Allman Brothers, Bob Dylan and others.   The surprisingly significant role that music played throughout Carter’s life, his election, and in his work becomes a thread in this engaging portrait of one of the most enigmatic Presidents in American history.

“As joyful and buoyant as its music.” – Caryn James, Hollywood Reporter

“Watching JIMMY CARTER: ROCK & ROLL PRESIDENT, it’s hard not to be stirred by the testimonials, from people like Dylan and Nelson and Bono, to Carter’s fine-grained humanity.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety

Language: English

Length: 1 hr. 35 min.
