BFI London Film Festival: The President

Power-hungry drama

When he’s not signing execution warrants, the president enjoys nothing more than spending time with his grandson. The despotic leader, played by Misha Gomiashvili, also likes to switch the city lights on and off just to screw with people. When the townsfolk are plunged into darkness however they decide to strike back. Childlike in places and brutal in others, The President mirrors real-life political events in Mohsen Makhmalbaf’s tale of corrupting power and revenge.
