THE PRESIDENT wins Chicago Filmfestival

The latest film coproduced by my company, Brümmer&Herzog Filmproduktion, has just won the Chicago Filmfestival (Golden Hugo Award).

Set “in an unknown country”– and shot in the Republic of Georgia– “The President” is a timely drama about a deposed dictator on the run with his 5-year-old grandson after a coup d’etat. They meet freed political prisoners who survived torture, as Mahkmalbaf did at the hands of the Shah’s secret police in the ‘70s.
