It’s doing pretty good at the box office.
In its first week in wider distribution, the documentary grossed an estimated $6.2 million, far exceeding industry expectations, according to independent distributor Rocky Mountain Pictures. That was virtually the same amount as the major studio action film “Premium Rush” collected — and “Obama’s America” was playing in roughly 1,100 fewer theaters.
From The Examiner.
Born in Mumbai, India, Dinesh D’Souza is an author of over twelve New York Times bestselling books. He is President of The King’s College; and a screenwriter and narrative voice for 2016: Obama’s America. Gerald Molen the film’s producer has three decades of blockbusters to his credit including Jurassic Park. 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. Along with John Sullivan, who co-wrote and co-directed, 2016: Obama’s America this artistic production team created a flawless Oscar worthy documentary.
For the audience, the opening establishes the undeniable credibility of Dinesh D’Souza as the narrative voice. Then the thesis, “If Obama wins a second term, where will we be in 2016?” is unveiled. The video photography takes the viewer on a journey through locations that include: Honolulu, Hawaii, Jakarta, Indonesia, Nairobi, Kenya and Mumbai, India; and the editing rhythmically creates a coherent, cohesive story.
Interviewees in the documentary include: Dr. Paul Vitz, Professor of Psychology at New York University; Dr. Alice Dewey, Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at UN Manoa; Dr. Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science and the executive director of The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College; Willy Kauai, Hawaiian Studies Lecturer at Windward Community College; George Obama the President Obama’s brother “who lives in a hut in Kenya like something out of Slumdog Millionaire”; Philip Ochieng, a Kenyan contemporary of President Obama’s father; Daniel Pipes, Commentary and Analysis on Radical Islam and the Middle East; and David Walker, who served as United States Comptroller General from 1998 to 2008, and is Founder and CEO of the Comeback America.
2016: Obama’s America in an intelligible manner discusses the psychology of ‘anticolonial’ ideals. The documentary proves to be a specific and highly focused, interesting, sometimes even challenging and surprising. Presented with a logical point of view on the subject the documentary identifies the specific causes and possible outcomes for our future.
D’Souza did an in-depth analysis in Forbes of Obama’s upbringing, indoctrination into Marxism, and essentially, the reasons why he behaves like the anti-democracy nihilist he is.
