In Theatres: THE PULITZER AT 100

Coming to theatres today, Friday, July 21:
THE PULITZER AT 100

Director:
Kirk Simon

Premiere:
Hot Docs Doc Soup (June 2016)

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Denver, Documentary Edge

About:
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.
