According to Obama, the documentary “shared stories of incredible people”. She very much hopes that this film can bring inspiration and joy in the current difficult times. Obama garnished her post with a first trailer for the film, which already provides brief insights into “Becoming”. The accompanying book was published in 2018 and quickly became an international bestseller. Among other things, Obama describes her career and life in the White House in Washington alongside her husband Barack.
