President Barack Obama's re-election campaign plans to release a 17-minute documentary next week about his first term in office.

Campaign manager Jim Messina says the documentary was directed by Davis Guggenheim, whose credits include the Academy Award-winning, "An Inconvenient Truth," about Al Gore's global-warming campaign.

Messina says the documentary will, in his words, "put into perspective the enormous challenges that the nation faced when the president took office and the strides we've made together."

Campaigns frequently release documentary films to reach voters and amplify the narrative of a candidate's message. In 1992, TV producers Harry Thomason and Linda Bloodworth-Thomason helped create "The Man From Hope," a campaign biography of Bill Clinton.
