America is all wired up for elections and President Obama is all geared up for his re-election campaign. If one talks about a campaign winning documentary Obama has it. Directed by Davis Guggenheim, “The Road We Traveled” is a 17 minute documentary film that spans the time between Obama’s monumental electoral win in 2008 to 2012.
It starts out with all the odds stacked against Obama and moves on to prove him to be the champion who managed to save the day. All narrated by Tom Hanks in the most impressive way. Looking back at Guggenheim’s Oscar winning An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore’s famous documentary on climate change, this should not come as a surprise. .
The documentary was released on Thursday and has managed to harness over a million viewers already. It has all the right factors, dire facts, challenges, and a hero delivering his people from all of it. Endorsing the tall claims are interview excerpts by the likes of Bill Clinton0, Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden among others.
