The Speech / Early Mourning / Search Party - 12th Annual Harlem International Film Festival
HARLEM SPOTLIGHT

THE SPEECH/DIE REDE
Director: Eduard Erne
Switzerland, 52 min

November 4th, 2008. President-elect Barack Obama addresses an enthusiastic gathering in Chicago's Grant Park. With the three words 'Yes, we can', Barack Obama sums up the country's optimism and its capacity for change.

The documentary 'The Speech' sets out to take this historic speech at its word. It seeks a dialogue about words and their effect, while also assessing a whole era. It takes us back to the beginning of Obama's presidency, to the energy of his words and the hopes and achievements that this speech was targeting. In a consciously radical fashion, the film focuses on the words. Witnesses are interviewed and it is their memories, emotions and criticisms that provide the framework for the film.
