Description

The story of the man behind the prize that bears his name. Over a century ago, Joseph Pulitzer championed the importance of freedom of the press. Filmmaker Oren Rudavsky (Colliding Dreams, Ruins of Lifta) recounts how a penniless young Jewish immigrant from Hungary grew into one of America's most admired and feared media figures. Throughout his four decades as a reporter and publisher of his New York newspaper The World, Pulitzer spoke with powerful journalistic ideals, artistry and game-changing originality, to an unprecedented number of readers. Adam Driver is the narrator, while the voices of Liev Schreiber, Rachel Brosnahan and Tim Blake Nelson help bring to life the man and his era.
