Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President

November 20, 2020 @ 9:00 pm


Jimmy Carter: Rock & Roll President

Tallahassee native Mary Wharton tells the story of how Jimmy Carter – peanut farmer and former governor of Georgia – turned a longshot bid for the American presidency into a victorious campaign through the power of rock'n'roll. A hardcore fan of rock, soul, blues and country, Carter turned to the musicians he loved to power his campaign through its lowest moments, and then welcomed them, including legends like Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson and Dizzy Gillespie, to the White House. Packed with interviews and timeless performance footage, the film evokes nostalgia for a time when politics and pop culture joined forces to unite a nation.
