Pete Souza was the official White House photographer for two presidents: Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. While many of his images from the latter's administration became iconic, two things made him known to a much wider audience: Instagram and the election of Donald Trump. Souza used the thousands of images he had of Obama acting both human and presidential to draw sharp contrast to the current president.
The Way I See It, based on Souza's best-selling books, gives viewers an inside look at the White House, with access only he could have had in his official capacity. It also highlights the role of the official White House photographer, a role greatly diminished under Trump's rule.
Produced by the team behind the Oscar-winning Free Solo, the film is directed by Dawn Porter, who also helmed the recent John Lewis doc Good Trouble. Check out the trailer below.
The Way I See It will have a limited release in theaters in September, assuming they're open.
