It has been more than five years since she left the White House. Since then, Barack, 61, and Michelle Obama, 58, have dedicated themselves to projects outside of politics – such as producing films for Netflix. The former president and now first lady appeared at the African American Film Festival in their neighborhood, the luxurious Martha’s Vineyard enclave in Massachusetts. There they presented the documentary “Scion”, which they co-produced. The film is about the descendants of Clotilda, the last known ship that illegally transported slaves to the United States 40 years after it was officially outlawed. After the show, the couple answered questions from the audience. Blick has selected for you the most interesting questions and answers.

Barack Obama: It’s great to be here. I’m glad I’m no longer the boss. Otherwise I wouldn’t be here for a week and have fun!
