Doc Soup January: The Final Year | Globe Cinema | Wednesday, 03. January 2018

THE FINAL YEAR is the third film in the 2017-18 Doc Soup Series co-presented by Hot Docs.
An unprecedented look at the final year of Barack Obama's presidency and his foreign policy team as they set out to define their legacy, promote diplomacy and react to the unexpected rise of Donald Trump.

During 2016, filmmaker Greg Barker was granted access inside the White House, the State Department, and the machinery of American power. This insiders’ account features key members of Obama’s foreign policy team including Secretary of State John Kerry, Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, and speechwriter Ben Rhodes.

From historic visits to Ho Chi Minh City, Hiroshima, and Havana to negotiating at the UN for a Syrian ceasefire, THE FINAL YEAR captures the real-life drama, intensity and humanity behind Obama's team of foreign policymakers.
