This week, we’ll hear about a new documentary celebrating former President Jimmy Carter, Georgia’s only president.

Two brothers from Peachtree City have dedicated a couple years to gathering insights of politicians, historians, journalists and educators in a film that examines arguably the world’s most famous peanut farmer. “Carterland” will premiere at the Atlanta Film Festival, where films will be screened in-person, at drive-ins and via virtual formats.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Bo Emerson spoke with the filmmakers, and he brings us that intimate conversation.
