Official Selection Toronto International Film Festival 2016
The film boasts a thoughtful script from Adam Mansbach and tremendous cinematography by Adam Newport-Berra.
Voted one of the "10 Best Movies of the 2016 Toronto Film Festival"
Working with cinematographer Adam Newport-Berra, Gandhi crafts a frame that is elegant and warm, which further serves the compelling nature of the narrative. This may be a film about serious issues, but that doesn’t mean it can’t still be entertaining. That’s one of Barry’s bright spots, in fact. That it manages to be a thought-provoking meditation on race in America (not to mention an absent father story) while also proving to be heavily entertaining—and that’s even before you factor in that this is also the story of our nation’s first non-white president.
"Beautifully captured by cinematographer Adam Newport-Berra, Barry has a fluid and stylish retro vibe to it."

"Adam Newport-Berra’s cinematography and Scott Kuzio’s production design ably illustrate the gritty, crime-infested New York in which Obama arrived."
