ASX.TV: Christopher Morris – “Obama’s Burden” (2009)

On Veterans Day, U.S. President Obama visited Arlington Cemetery. After official presentations, the President went to Section 60, which is reserved for U.S. Military war dead from Afghanistan and Iraq.

What I’ve attempted to show in the film is the heavy Burden that awaits the President.
This was the view out his window as his motorcade made its way through the vast Arlington Cemetery.
On his return to the White House. President Obama met with his national security team to discuss Afghanistan in the Situation Room of the White House .
