‘Working: What We Do All Day’ (2023). Documentary on Netflix with Barack Obama


Working: What We Do All Day is a documentary directed by Caroline Suh.

The presence of Barack Obama is the main attraction in this documentary series about normal people and the matter that keeps us busy most of the day: working and making the world, in some strange way, keep turning around (even though deep down it doesn’t need us at all).

The former president takes a tour around the United States and engages with its people, from hotel employees to executives, from the first to the last, on a journey to, as he says, know why we are connected.

As Michelle Obama already did, it is now Barack, the former president, who makes his foray into the world of television, also by the hand of Netflix, to take us to a journey that is not extravagant, not vulgar at all and certainly singular.

Work: That what we do all day is a walk through the streets and its people, interesting, cordial and very light and close, a documentary that achieves what it wants, what it intends and seeks: the naturalness and the special in, precisely, the not special by the hand of a guy who had, yes, a pretty special job.

Enjoy it.
