Barack Obama: The Movie

Wednesday, June 30, 2010

There will be lights, cameras and red carpets in the Indonesian capital Jakarta this evening at the the opening of a new film based on President Obama's childhood. 

The film, "Obama, the Menteng Kid," a reference to the neighborhood he lived in, is the creation of Indonesian writer Damien Dematra who wrote a fictional novel on Obama's upbringing in the late 1960s and early 1970s in Jakarta. 

BBC correspondent Karishma Vaswani watched a sneak preview and tells us what she saw. (Watch the trailer after the jump.)
