Based on the New York Times #1 bestseller “Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents,” comes “The Way I See It,” an unprecedented look behind the scenes of two of the most iconic Presidents in American History, Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan, as seen through the eyes of renowned photographer Pete Souza.
As the Official White House Photographer, Souza was an eyewitness to the unique and tremendous responsibilities of being the most powerful person on Earth. The movie reveals how Souza transforms from a respected photojournalist to a searing commentator on the issues we face as a country and a people.
Souza is a best-selling author, speaker and freelance photographer based in Madison, Wisconsin. He is also Professor Emeritus of Visual Communication at Ohio University. Souza was the Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama and the Director of the White House photo office. His book, Obama: An Intimate Portrait, was published by Little, Brown & Company in 2017, and debuted at #1 on the New York Times bestseller list. It is one of the best-selling photography books of all time.
The film is directed and produced by Dawn Porter, with Laura Dern also serving as a producer under her Jaywalker Pictures banner.
The film is now playing and will be followed by a commercial free broadcast on MSNBC on October 16, 2020 at 10:00pm EDT.
