Devon Terrell stars in the movie as a young Obama attending Columbia University, long before his run for the presidency. Terrell is a rather new face, with "Barry" his first major project, according to IMDB.
"Barry is the story of a young man grappling with those same issues that his country, and arguably the world, are still coming to terms with 35 years later," the description adds.
In the clip, we mainly see Terrell from the back, moving forward in his life. Obama's junior year in college is the backdrop for a time when the future president explores his ideas and feelings on race and government in the U.S., reports Indiewire.
"Before he made us believe we can, he was Barry," the screen reads.
At the end of the 29-second clip, we finally see Terrell face forward as Obama.
The movie thus far has pretty great reviews prior to its wide release. IMDB gives it a 7.8 out of 10, while Rotten Tomatoes rates it 92 percent.
The film is written by Adam Mansbach and directed by Vikram Gandhi, who is a producer on the show "Vice."
