Magnolia Pictures has acquired worldwide rights to the HBO documentary “The Final Year,” which tells the story of President Obama’s foreign policy team during their last year in office.
“The Final Year” is directed by Greg Barker, and premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last month.
Magnolia plans to launch a multi-city theatrical release in January, nearly one year after President Trump’s inauguration. HBO will then debut “The Final Year” on the network in the second quarter of the year.
The film offers a behind-the-scenes look at key members of Obama’s foreign policy team, including Secretary of State John Kerry, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, National Security Adviser Susan Rice and Obama himself among others.
"I didn’t run for President to be popular. I ran for President to do what needed to be done. And I placed my bet on you. And after visiting auto plants across the Midwest, and seeing what you have done firsthand, let me tell you, I’d make that same bet any day of the week. Because today, factories are humming, business is booming, the American auto industry is all the way back." —President Obama in Detroit
