"Senator Obama Goes To Africa"
Barack Obama returns to his family's roots on an emotional journey to
Kisumu, Kenya - land of his father - in this 2006 documentary.
Part personal odyssey and part chronicle of diplomacy in action, this
timely film follows Senator Barack Obama as he travels to the land of
his ancestry on an August, 2006, diplomatic trip to Africa. The heart of the
film is Obama's emotional homecoming to Kisumu, Kenya - his father's former
home - where thousands of people turn out to greet him. In South Africa, we
follow Senator Obama on a trip to Robben Island - the infamous prison where
Nelson Mandela was jailed for 21 years. At a Darfur refugee camp in Chad, we
see, through Obama's eyes, the devastating effects of genocide.
Throughout it all, Senator Obama narrates the film, giving his own
perspective on the journey and the significance of Africa to U.S. interests.
