entertainment Updated: Sep 05, 2009 18:58 IST

A documentary on US President Barack Obama’s late mother Stanley Ann Dunham will soon be made.

The documentary titled Stanley Ann Dunham: A Most Generous Spirit, will look into her work in microfinance.

It will focus on her decision to send her 10-year-old son from Indonesia to live in Hawaii with her parents out of fear that her politically sensitive work might endanger his life.

Aloe Entertainment will produce the film, while the company topper Mary Aloe will exec produce.

"According to Barack Obama himself, his mother was his single biggest influence in his life," Variety quoted Aloe as saying.

Charles Burnett will direct the film.

He has helmed documentaries including Killer of Sheep, Oprah Winfrey Presents: The Wedding in the past.

Dunham died at the age of 52 of cancer in 1995.
