Summary The week before the Iranian people go to the polls to elect their next president, SBS ONE puts a spotlight on the Iranian regime with Letters to the PresidentThis film follows Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on his trips around rural Iran where he preaches his domestic populism and anti-US foreign policy. The mass support in the countryside is astounding.As part of his strategy, Ahmadinejad has set up a Presidential Letter office that purports to solve the personal problems of ordinary Iranians. The office has received more than 10 million letters, usually requests for economic help. The administrators from the centre claim they are largely successful in answering the letters and solving their problems.Soon, however, it becomes clear that all is not as it seems. Bureaucratic incompetence and empty promises are the real results of most letters to the President. (From Greece, in Farsi, English subtitles) (Documentary) PG WS
