  5. Obama-ology


Written by Aurin Squire
Directed by Jon Lawrence Rivera

Presented in association with Providence Entertainment Ltd

Changing the world isn't as easy as Warren had imagined.

An enthusiastic African-American college graduate is hired by the 2008 Obama campaign and lands in the streets of East Cleveland. Somewhere between knocking on doors, fending off cops, and questioning his own identity, he learns that working in the "spotlight of Hope" isn't going to be as easy as he had imagined. Obama-ology is a compelling exploration of re-igniting the dreams of a black minority and the hopes of a country.
