Page One: Inside the New York Times


Premiering in competition at the Sundance Film Festival and nominated for two News and Documentary Emmy Awards, Andrew Rossi's Page One looks at the crisis in the newspaper industry to understand how competition from online media and the decline in print advertising is leading to a contraction in traditional journalism. In Page One, the way in to this complex web of financial, social and technological vectors is the story of a former drug addict turned media columnist at the New York Times, David Carr. In Carr’s story of personal reinvention as an addict and in his blistering reporting of the media’s seismic shifts, the audience finds a Virgil character to explain both the issues and the stakes. As Hendrik Hertzberg wrote in the New Yorker, “Page One is surprisingly moving, and not a little chilling, because of the way it shows the Times’ reporters and editors bravely upholding their noble craft against an ominous backdrop of business-side global warming.”
