Becoming Barack (Full Movie)
I’m not sure how much of this is true… but its entertaining. So I guess Barack is black…again?
An Intimate Portrait of a Young Man Destined to Make History, Including a Never-Before-Seen “Lost” Interview
Becoming Barack: Evolution of a Leader traces the early path of a man destined to make history and to be a catalyst for global change.
This exciting new documentary features footage from three of the earliest known recorded interviews with Obama: a1986 WMAQ-Chicago news story about Obama’s earliest success as a community activist; a 1991clip from a news interview while he was a student at Harvard Law School; and a 15-minute “lost” interview done in 1993 by an aspiring African-American documentary producer in Chicago, which never aired.
In the third interview Obama was just 32-years-old, two years out of law school, a professor teaching constitutional law at University of Chicago, a fervent community organizer and a newlywed who had not yet contemplated running for public office. “… I might think about it, but that time is certainly in the future,” says Obama in an excerpt from the found interview.
Becoming Barack also features rare personal photos; interviews with family and a range of Chicago-area leaders in business and in grassroots community organizing who knew Obama intimately during his formulative years, sharing personal memories and anecdotes; and historic photos and video footage of “Obama’s Chicago” in the mid ’80’s through early ’90s.
Becoming Barack reveals an unseen perspective of our new president at a time when he was finding his way—forming the ideals and principles that would guild him on an historic path. Even at this early time in his life, a vision of hope shines brightly … a desire to make his country a better place for all people.
