That too-long-in-the-works Barack Obama documentary from directors Amy Rice and Alicia Sams — the doc that began shooting in ’06 and may not be finished until sometime next fall (or so I read earlier this year) — will air on HBO, according to an exclusive report by Indiewire’s Eugene Hernandez.

This thing should be out in the world concurrent with or just after Obama’s inauguration. By next fall all kinds of headaches, heartaches and downturns will have kicked in and the vibe won’t be the same. The world demands a fast turnaround these days. It’s being edited by Sam Pollard . Filming will keep on through Inauguration Day.
