HIFF & GH present NOW SHOWING: a screening of THE FINAL YEAR, directed by Greg Barker.
A look at the inner workings of the Obama administration as they prepare to establish a legacy when leaving power after eight years. THE FINAL YEAR revolves around Obama’s foreign policy team: Secretary of State John Kerry; UN Ambassador Samantha Power; Deputy National Security Adviser and presidential confidant Ben Rhodes; as well as National Security Adviser Susan Rice; and the President himself. Over the course of 2016, they travel the world attempting to solidify and “lock-in” policies they believe will define their legacy, promote diplomacy over large-scale military action, and fundamentally alter how the US government confronts questions of war and peace, as they prepare to hand over the machinery of American power to a new administration.
