The Final Year

The Final Year

THE FINAL YEAR is a unique, insiders’ account of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy team during their last year in office. Director Greg Barker’s acclaimed documentary is a remarkable achievement, as the team were given unprecedented access inside the White House and State Department, offering viewers an uncompromising look at the inner workings of the Obama Administration as they prepared to leave power after eight years.

“For most viewers inclined to check out a film about the subject, it will be hard not to cry.” (Hollywood Reporter)

“A compelling and well-made documentary about statesmanship at the highest level, enriched with an element of horror due to the rise of Trump occurring in the background.” (Birth.Movies.Death.)

“Barker takes a simple premise and, through nothing more than some solid editing and a clear-eyed focus, creates an insightful and surprisingly moving snapshot of one of the most tumultuous events in recent political history.” (The List)
