Joseph Pulitzer: Voice of the People
Rafael 1 Fri, Oct 5 3:30 PM
If you’ve ever experienced history through a punchy headline or simply picked up a newspaper to find out about the world, you have Joseph Pulitzer to thank. A Hungarian immigrant, the young Pulitzer was hired as reporter in St. Louis in the late 1800s; he’d eventually move into publishing, purchase the New York World, and set the pace for covering news in the 20th century. Narrated by Adam Driver (and featuring Liev Schreiber as the voice of Pulitzer), this portrait from director Oren Rudavsky (The Treatment, MVFF 2006) recounts the life and times of modern journalism’s founding father as he evolves into both a crusader for the common man and a wealthy, influential political donor. Voice of the People presages today’s fight for truth in the “fake news” era as seen through the eyes of an American legend who helped shape our nation, one 36-point headline at a time.
