Campaign officials for President Obama’s reelection race announced Wednesday that they are planning to release a 17-minute documentary about his first term in office next week.
The movie itself will be screened at events around the country. A trailer released Thursday morning begins with narrator Tom Hanks asking: “How do we understand this president and his time in office?” Do we loOOT”ok at the day’s headlines, or do we remember what we as a country have been through?”
Former White House adviser and current Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is featured in the trailer, along with Vice President Joe Biden, former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.
Campaign manager Jim Messina told reporters that the documentary will “put into perspective the enormous challenges that the nation faced when the president took office and the strides we’ve made together.”
