Malia Obama, the daughter of my forever FLOTUS and POTUS Michelle and Barack Obama, is screening her short film, The Heart, at the Sundance Film Festival.

The 25-year-old, who is credited as Malia Ann, wrote and directed the film about a grieving son, whose mother left him with an unusual request in her will.

The Heart debuted on Wednesday at the festival and will screen throughout the week. 

In a video, Malia Obama talked about the purpose of her short film.

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 these 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.

The Heart was previously screened at Telluride and it was recognized in the best live-action short category at the Chicago International Film Festival. 

Malia Obama isn’t new to this! 

You may recall she previously worked as a writer on the Donald Glover-produced limited series, “Swarm,” starring Dominique Fishback

Congratulations to Malia, who is a beautiful visual of both of her parents!

I look forward to seeing The Heart!
