As we prepare to cast ballots in perhaps the most consequential election in U.S. history, what can cinematic profiles in leadership tell us about picking our future elected officials? From a big city mayor to British and Israeli Prime Ministers, political biographies are a hallmark of the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. For our latest election-themed podcast, join host Brad Pilcher for a conversation with two of Atlanta’s best political journalists: Bill Nigut of Georgia Public Broadcasting and Denis O'Hayer of 90.1 FM WABE. We’ll go beyond ideology and policy to examine what the movies can reveal about the indispensable qualities of successful leaders, and lessons we can learn from these historical figures as we prepare to vote in the 2020 elections.
