The Obamas have announced the release of their next Netflix documentary film, whose subject is none other than a celebration of the life and times of Michelle Obama herself.
As The Daily Wire reports:
In March 2018, prior to former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle inking their multi-year partnership deal with the internet streaming service Netflix two months later, a senior adviser to Barack Obama enthused, “President and Mrs. Obama have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire. Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better. As they consider their future personal plans, they continue to explore new ways to help others tell and share their stories.”
Apparently helping others meant helping themselves, as Netflix has announced that the Obama’s company Higher Ground Productions’ latest film is a documentary celebrating Michelle Obama, following her as she traveled around the country to promote her bestselling memoir, “Becoming.”
“The announcement comes with a letter from Obama, in which she says this wasn’t just a standard book tour: ‘In groups large and small, young and old, unique and united, we came together and shared stories, filling those spaces with our joys, worries, and dreams,’” reports TechCrunch, adding that Netflix plans to release the film on May 6.
It seems that the Obamas’ idea of “giving back ” is making a self-flattering documentary glorifiying Michelle Obama’s life. A life which many may argue has been less than extordinary.
