Certainly the word “career” is a little too small for what Michelle and Barack Obama were doing during the day because they weren’t first couple They are more. As both of them no longer run the Rose Garden in the White House, they go back to their own lives. If I’m right – that’s just the latest news – Obama just quit Spotify because access to the giant platform isn’t enough for them. Few do so wonderfully colorful.
What’s also amazing about the super career of the global couple is that you can never be jealous of them. The Obama family collects millions on every corner for another book or podcast, they are elitist beyond the confines of their private beach. But somehow they always get the curve, Barack Obama is particularly impressive again in his latest project, a five-part nature park documentary for Netflix.
At the beginning of this documentary, Obama walks barefoot along the beach and immediately calms you down with stories from his life. A little later, the former world’s most powerful man said that we are all “not powerless” in the fight against climate change and environmental destruction. You want to get angry for a moment and bark at him: Can you think about that right now?
But it is true that Obama protected 220 million hectares of American land through the Antiquities Act during his tenure, more than any president before him. It’s also true that Obama can now use facial and voice recognition for things other than providing information about Japanese moss and cedar carpets on Internet pay-TV.
He talks about the sound. Almost the entire American internet has melted this week because of the way Obama comments on these films, precisely and with that very special austerity known only from nature documentaries and perhaps from commentaries on select fringe sports. When a lemur flies between stone-sharp and stunning in a mixture of parkour and spontaneous spiderweb, Obama says this only from the start: “One slip can be fatal.” There is nothing better than that.
With this well-known sound from ASRM, travel from western Patagonia to Yellowstone and Cahills Park in Australia’s Northern Territory, where the merry river cruise of some gunslings ends abruptly and brutally in the sudden mouth of a local crocodile.
Obama isn’t the only reason this scene goes beyond the usual standard of nature documentaries. She gets it through the effort involved in filmmaking, through the narrative power of direction, and through a balance between playfulness and fearlessness. The crew, also augmented with on-site specialists, was able to bring in plenty of material over the 1,500 days of filming, including some very rare items. And all this mixed together, where the maximum beauty of this land comes to its own – without losing sight of the threat posed by man and man-made climate change.
So the three-toed sloth is totally on the ropes, who doesn’t know
Narrative power grows from the combination of vocal prodigy Barack Obama and the selection of his “heroes”. In a very light and light summer shirt dad jokeHis position, he becomes a reserve and a well-meaning and humorous tour guide in the national parks of this world.
When Obama salutes sivaka from the ceiling after a short pause, “ceiling shivaka,” it still appears as if he uttered the name of a friendly head of state in his State of the Union address. When hippos surf in salt water because it makes them seem lighter due to their higher density, or when Obama happily starts a lecture on white-throated sloths, you immediately want to sign up for wildlife care.
Preferably straight for the three-toed sloth from Manuel Antonio National Park in Costa Rica. It’s a speed limit turned animal and the slowest metabolizing mammal in the world. It’s totally hanging on the ropes, who doesn’t know. And while in the case of cougar hunting scenes and swarms of crocodiles in translation, the remarkable performance note”[dramatic music continues]”You read, this sloth doesn’t really need any escort. He’s just sitting there—and looking at the sun.”
It is as if sloths have understood a lot more about life than most of those who only visit national parks occasionally rather than staying permanently at home there.
