THE FINAL YEAR is a unique insiders’ account of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy team
during their last year in office. Featuring unprecedented access inside the White House and State
Department, THE FINAL YEAR offers an uncompromising view of the inner workings of the
Obama Administration as they prepare to leave power after eight years. The film revolves around a foreign policy team assembled by Barack Obama nearly a decade ago, during his first presidential campaign: Secretary of State John Kerry, UN Ambassador Samantha
Power, Deputy National Security Advisor and presidential confidant Ben Rhodes, as well National
Security Advisor Susan Rice and President Obama himself.
The film tracks this team over the course of 2016, as they travel the world attempting to solidify
and “lock-in” policies that they believe will define their legacy, promote diplomacy over largescale
military action, and fundamentally alter how the US government confronts questions of war
and peace. The unfolding crisis in Syria (and Russia’s role), the resurgence of nationalism, and the results of the US election all challenge this legacy in unexpected and fundamental ways, leading the team to re-evaluate their lasting achievements as they prepare to hand-over the machinery of American power.
