Don’t miss the Q&A…

After you register for this Film Independent Goes to Washington screening, be sure to register for the follow-up event, The Way I See It Q&A, featuring director/producer Dawn Porter and photojournalist/subject Pete Souza. (Monday, September 14 – 3:00 pm PT)

Inspired by a New York Times No. 1 bestseller, The Way I See It is an unprecedented look behind the scenes at 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 official White House photographer, Souza was an eyewitness to the unique and tremendous responsibilities of the most powerful person on Earth. The movie also reveals how Souza transforms from a respected photojournalist to a searing commentator on the issues we face as a country and a people.

2020, 102 minutes, color | Produced and Directed by Dawn Porter | Produced by Evan Hayes | Produced by Laura Dern, Jayme Lemons | Executive Produced by Justin V. Barocas | Inspired by “Shade: A Tale of Two Presidents” and “Obama: An Intimate Portrait” by Pete Souza
