Santa Monica College (SMC) will present a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary “The Final Year.” The special event includes an audience Q&A with the documentary’s director, award-winning filmmaker Greg Barker.

The free event will be held November 15 at 11:15 a.m. in Stromberg Hall (HSS 165) on the SMC main campus, 1900 Pico Blvd. Seating is on a first-arrival basis.

“The Final Year” presents an insider’s perspective on the Obama Administration as it prepares to leave power after eight years. With a focus on US foreign policy, the film reveals the human dynamics and emotions at play inside the normally opaque world of US diplomacy. The documentary features former UN Ambassador Samantha Power, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Deputy National Security Advisor and presidential confidant Ben Rhodes.

The screening is sponsored by the SMC Associates (, SMC Black Collegians, SMC Adelante Program, SMC English Department, and SMC Film Studies program.
