Storyline

At age 18, Barack Obama admittedly arrived at Occidental College a committed revolutionary Marxist. What was the source of Obama's foundation in Marxism? Throughout his 2008 Presidential campaign and term in office, questions have been raised regarding Barack Obama's family background, economic philosophy, and fundamental political ideology. Dreams from My Real Father is the alternative Barack Obama "autobiography," offering a divergent theory of what may have shaped our 44th President's life and politics. In Dreams from My Real Father, Barack Obama is portrayed by a voiceover actor who chronicles Barack Obama's life journey in socialism, from birth through his election to the Presidency. The film begins by presenting the case that Barack Obama's real father was Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA propagandist who likely shaped Obama's world view during his formative years. Barack Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. Was ... Written by Joel Gilbert

This documentary is absolutely awful.
25 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I also received this DVD in the mail and I took it as political propaganda against President Obama facing the presidential election. But, when I saw it, I realized that this film was much more than a mere political propaganda, to become a totally false and offensive document, not only for President Obama, but to their legitimate parents, for the prestigious Occidental College, for president's wife and for the people of the United States. I do not understand how a filmmaker can dare to make an "alternative autobiography" of a character as well known as the president of the United States and place an actor (whose name is not given) to tell the story as if it were the biography of a character who died long ago. I'm not surprised at all that it is rated so low and they have to give it away, because this documentary film is pure garbage. So I pour it immediately where it belongs, in the trash can.
