FULLY BOOKED – Screening – Page One: Inside the New York Times

Screening July 29, 2011 7:00 PM

Spanning an entire year in the life of the behemoth of American print media, Page One: A Year Inside the New York Times  examines the changing face of journalism, and the conflicts that arise as a result.

The film shows how the internet is changing the way stories are reported, broken, and interpreted and poses the questions: how can The New York Times navigate change while maintaining its reputation for quality journalism?

Page One straddles the current crisis in journalism, including interviews with veteran journalists as they compete with the newer generation of internet-savvy writers. While the paper struggles to keep afloat in an economic recession, writers battle it out over breaking news in a high-stakes competition for readership. 

Directed by Andrew Rossi
