Not the final year of life on Planet Earth, one hopes
THE FINAL YEAR is a unique insiders' account of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy team during their last year in office. Featuring unprecedented access inside the White House and State Department, THE FINAL YEAR offers an uncompromising view of the inner workings of the Obama Administration as they prepare to leave power after eight years.
Directed by Greg Barker, the film revolves around a foreign policy team assembled by Barack Obama nearly a decade ago, during his first presidential campaign: Secretary of State John Kerry, UN Ambassador Samantha Power, Deputy National Security Advisor and presidential confidant Ben Rhodes, as well National Security Advisor Susan Rice and President Obama himself. Featuring prominently, Ambassador Power worked in the White House as Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights at the National Security Council, ahead of becoming UN Ambassador. She is also a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist.
THE FINAL YEAR will be released in cinemas across the UK & Ireland on 19th January by Dogwoof.
