THE PULITZER AT 100
Hot Docs Doc Soup (June 2016)
DOC NYC, Denver, Documentary Edge
An examination of the rich legacy of the Pulitzer Prize.
A celebration less of the award than of the artists and writers who have been recognized with the honor over its century-long existence, Simon’s film demonstrates the power of storytelling and speaking truth to power. Interviews with winners of the prestigious award address their work and its impact on society – as well as the impact of the award on expanding their audience. In a present culture that sees journalism being subject to attack by the Oval Office, and facing economic viability on a more general level, it’s important to have a reminder of the necessity of recognizing and honoring its accomplishments.
