Who Is Barack Obama? presents a close-up, never-before-seen perspective of Barack Obama. Starting with his early days as a Chicago organizer in the 1980's and the early 1990's, Who Is Barack Obama? offers new details about how his identity evolved. Features rare footage, including the earliest interviews on record.
Because you won't find it here. Admittedly this is pretty (read: really) skewed toward showing a "best of reel" of "organizer Obama." If you're looking for that "hard hitting journalism" that furthers your crackpot confirmation bias, then look elsewhere! Still, it's a pretty sophomoric attempt at a documentary.
Fascinating documentary about the life of Barack Obama before he became president. Focuses largely on his career as a community organizer in Chicago. Shows that it wasn't just luck or strategic politicking that made him president, but it was his strong reputation for listening to people, organizing people, and working with people to improve their lives. I was shocked to see so many of these bad reviews, but my sense is that they are mostly conservatives who were looking for the dark conspiracy-type gossip about him being muslim or not born in the U.S. or whatever other fantasy they have of him.
