Obama Campaign to Release Film

Davis Guggenheim, the Academy Award–winning director behind Waiting for Superman and An Inconvenient Truth, adds to his résumé a documentary about President Barack Obama. The 17-minute-film about the president’s first term will be released by Obama’s reelection campaign next week. Campaign manager Jim Messina said Wednesday that the film will “put into perspective the enormous challenges that the nation faced when the president took office and the strides we’ve made together.”
