Former First daughter shines on the Silver Screen: Malia Obama debuts short film at Sundance

Malia Obama, the eldest daughter of former US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama stepped into the director's role this week. Her debut film, "The Heart," premiered at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival, showcasing her entry into the world of filmmaking.

Written and directed by Malia Obama under her middle name, Malia Ann, the film is characterized as a "comedic drama about lost objects and lonely people, forgiveness, and regret." It narrates the journey of a man dealing with grief following his mother's passing, who later encounters an unexpected request in her will.

Malia said, “The film is about lost objects and lonely people and forgiveness and regret, but I also think it works hard to uncover where tenderness and closeness can exist in those things.”

“We hope you enjoy the film and it makes you feel a bit less lonely, or at least reminds you not to forget about the people who are," she continued.


After completing her education at Harvard University in 2021, the young Obama ventured into the entertainment industry. Malia served as a writer on the Prime Video series "Swarm," produced by Donald Glover. Her experience also includes working as an intern for the HBO series "Girls" and a role as a production assistant on the TV series "Extant," featuring Halle Berry.
