PAGE ONE: INSIDE THE NEW YORK TIMES

USA, 2011 (MIFF 2011, Documentaries)

Director: Andrew Rossi

PAGE ONE: INSIDE THE NEW YORK TIMES

A fascinating look at the inner-workings of one of the world's most respected newspapers.

At a time when the print industry is suffering a massive decline, filmmaker Andrew Rossi was granted unprecedented access to the nerve-centre of The New York Times's operations over a 12-month period, during which he captures vibrant cross-cubicle debates and collaborations, tenacious jockeying for on-record quotes and skillful page-one pitching.

With the acerbic former-crack-addict-turned-senior-writer David Carr assuming centrestage, Rossi shows a media landscape fraught with peril and opportunity, even covering the emergence of Wikileaks and its implications as a journalistic source.

"Potent and provocative." - Rolling Stone
