About 2016: Obama's America
2016 Obama's America takes audiences on a gripping visual journey into the heart of the world's most powerful office to reveal the struggle of whether one man's past will redefine America over the next four years. The film examines the question, "If Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?"
Across the globe and in America, people in 2008 hungered for a leader who would unite and lift us from economic turmoil and war. True to America's ideals, they invested their hope in a new kind of president, Barack Obama. What they didn't know is that Obama is a man with a past, and in powerful ways that past defines him-who he is, how he thinks, and where he intends to take America and the world.
Immersed in exotic locales across four continents, best selling 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 identifies new flashpoints 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.
Emotionally engaging, 2016 Obama's America will make you confounded and cheer as you discover the mysteries and answers to your greatest aspirations and worst fears.
Love him or hate him, you don't know him.
About the Filmmakers
Gerald R. Molen
Gerald Molen has produced many of the most memorable films in the last three decades including blockbusters like Jurassic Park, Twister, Days of Thunder, Hook and Minority Report. He was a producer for the Academy Award winning film Schindler's List and co-producer for Rain Man which won the Oscar for Best Picture.
Born in Mumbai, India Dinesh D'Souza has truly lived the American Dream. He moved to the United States to attend Dartmouth College and upon graduation he went to work in the Reagan White House as a policy analyst.
He has been a fellow of the Hoover Institute at Stanford University and the American Enterprise Institute. He is also the author of the New York Times Bestseller The Roots of Obama's Rage. His other book titles include the popular What's So Great About Christianity, Letters to a Young Conservative, and The End of Racism. He is a popular speaker and has appeared on Hannity, The Colbert Report, Glenn Beck and Politically Incorrect.
The film has yet to open wide in the U.S., but it has already caused a box office splash in Texas. The documentary opened in a single theater in July in the Lone Star State, grossing almost $32,000 in its opening weekend, with moviegoers waiting as much as 90 minutes to meet the filmmakers.
D'Souza, who sparked debate several years ago with his book "The Roots of Obama's Rage," uses Obama's words and the words of those close to him to piece together what the President may really mean by the phrase "hope and change."
"The reason we called it '2016' is because we want audiences to question what the implications are, and what the world would look like in 2016 if he is re-elected," D'Souza said. "It is a real mystery how he managed to convince so many Americans to vote for him, and how some of his deepest beliefs have gone unscrutinized."
In addition to revisiting Obama's close relationship with controversial pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright, "2016" probes other seemingly radical leaders and professors D'Souza says shaped the 44th President's political leanings. It goes on to explore the dramatic deficit the U.S. has accumulated during his term, and expresses D'Souza's own concerns regarding how things might play out if Obama is granted another term and no longer has to be concerned about getting reelected.
