Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times is a fly-on-the-wall look into the inner workings of media giant The New York Times. Take a tour into the newsroom over one year, see the inner-workings of the organisation, and the eccentric and devoted characters who work there.
As newspapers and media are thrown off the pedestal of our main source of news, what is to come of the one mighty New York Times? Director Andrew Rossi offers an affectionate portrait of the newspaper in a time of rapid change and serious vulnerability. What we see is one of the world’s oldest and proudest giants in decline, asking the question, what will happen to the world of media if the New York Times collapses?
Watch what happens behind the scenes when the world’s biggest media stories hit; the decline of the Iraq War, Wikileaks’ exploding into the media, and the downfall of the Chicago Tribune.
An official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, this documentary is a must for all those with an interest in the media, and those uncertain about it’s future. It opens in cinemas 15 September 2011 (NSW, QLD & ACT).
