2016: Obama's America (DVD)
by Dinesh D'Souza and John Sullivan
The movie that explains it all. The movie that everyone is talking about. The movie the White House doesn’t want you to see.
Immersed in exotic locales across four continents, bestselling author Dinesh D'Souza races against time to find answers to Obama's past and reveal where America will be in 2016.
During this journey, he discovers how Hope and Change became radically misunderstood, and he identifies new flash points for hot wars in mankind's greatest struggle. The journey moves quickly over the arc of the old colonial empires into America's empire of liberty, and we see the unfolding realignment of nations and the shape of the global future.
Note: Rated PG for thematic elements, brief language and smoking images.
"The documentary itself was fascinating, as D'Souza presented the story of Barack Obama's life and view of the world, in a very conversational sort of way, illustrating it with visits to people and places around the world that played a role in the way Obama's ideas and beliefs evolved.
"It was refreshing to see how addressing adults as adults could be effective, in an age when so many parts of the media address the public as if they were children who need a constant whirlwind of sounds and movements to keep them interested." – Thomas Sowell
“Political reporters and commentators who participated in the mythmaking of the 2008 campaign and afterward should, after seeing this film, leave the theater kicking themselves for a missed golden opportunity. Had a one of them put into practice a third of the investigative scrutiny D'Souza applied to Obama's background, he or she could have gained everlasting fame and fortune.
“While one can look upon Obama's childhood and upbringing as sad tale, it is also true that he is a child of privilege who was afforded a lavish education from high school on. As D'Souza argues, Obama realized that Americans of goodwill were willing to help him advance – in college, in law school, in politics – and he capitalized on that help to present himself as a figure of unity while harboring the resentments of his surrogates. He had his chances, and he made his choices. “Barack Obama may be a natural-born American citizen, and he may be the American president. He may be from America, but he is not of America. Neither is his dream.” – Matthew May
“The film makes this case in a far more compelling manner than one would expect from a “political” movie. Interviews and footage taken on-site in Indonesia, Kenya and the United States provide first-person accounts from those with direct knowledge. The presentation is calm and rational and yet it holds one’s interest. The visuals and soundtrack are first-rate. “At a time of crisis in 2008, America turned to a little-known but inspirational figure, Barack Obama, for leadership. Whether one today supports him or not, this film provides insight into the president’s history and life story and presents it in a way that surpasses expectations.” – Ron Nehring, former chairman of the San Diego County and California Republican Parties
“The most likely explanation of the success of 2016 is that filmmakers Dinesh D’Souza and Gerald Molen have tapped into a deep well of curiosity and concern among ordinary Americans about the man they elected president four years ago, a man many find aloof and hard to understand. At the heart of D’Souza’s argument is the contention that Obama cannot afford to let the American people in on his true radical vision of a diminished American place in the world. If he did, they would never vote for him." – Helle C. Dale, senior fellow in Public Diplomacy Studies, the Heritage Foundation
