Samantha Power, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, and Greg Barker, the director of a new documentary about the Obama administration’s work to establish his foreign policy legacy, discuss the film, called "The Final Year."

BL asks director @gjbarker what he was trying to document in "The Final Year"; he says "sanity...this is what normal looks like...and what's it like in reverse, when people are leaving power and trying to define their legacy on their way out."
