Greg Barker on His DOC NYC Opener “The Final Year”

“At the beginning of every project I tell my prospective characters that documentaries always involve a leap of faith. I am asking them to reveal themselves to me and my cameras, and then trust that I will tell their story accurately. I had the same conversations on this film.”- Greg Barker

Opening DOC NYC 2017 on November 9th is Greg Barker’s The Final Year, a truly up-close-and-personal, behind-the-scenes look at the Obama administration and its foreign policy team during its last 12 months. The documentary will kick off the festival, followed by a conversation with director Greg Barker, Ben Rhodes, and other senior Obama Administration officials. Produced by Passion Pictures and Motto Pictures.
