The official trailer of a new documentary on Kamala Harris, the first woman, Asian-American, and first-person of Indian-origin Vice President of the US, called ‘Vice President Kamala Harris: Chase The Dream’ has released on Amazon Prime in the United States.
The biographical documentary follows the campaign trail of Harris, her journey as a prosecutor from Oakland, California to the White House as Vice President. The documentary shows the pivotal events in Harris’ life that fueled the Vice President’s journey to the highest-ranking office of any female in the history of the US.
“It was just a couple of blocks from this very spot, nearly 30 years ago as a young district attorney, I walked into the courtroom for the first time and said the five words that would guide my life’s work. Kamala Harris, for the people,” the trailer of the documentary starts with the speech of Harris.
The documentary is executive produced by Danan Webber and Brian Aebech.

Here is the synopsis of the documentary film:
The American Dream is alive and well. Just Ask Kamala Harris. A blending of Jamaican and Indian roots is clearly a colorful recipe for success. Yes, the road turned a bit rocky due to parental divorce when she was seven then moving to Montreal, Canada for her mother’s university hospital job. The first-born child of a California research biologist and economics professor, Harris would also defy ethic stereotypes by earning a law degree from the University of California in 1989. From classroom to courtroom, Kamala Harris is now the first black woman and South Asian American to serve as U.S. Vice President.
Law and order was her calling. It was a career highlighted by seven years as San Francisco’s District Attorney then six more as California’s Attorney General. Her first term in the U.S. Senate was cut short by the campaign. It makes sense that the girl who once attended services at both black Baptist churches and Hindu temples has espoused liberal policies on minority rights, immigration, gun control and climate change. Her first name certainly fits since in Sanskrit “Kamala” means “lotus” which is a flower than can rise from deep waters and re-emerge in full bloom.
