Movie Info

Filmmaker Eric Daniel Metzgar highlights the importance of sincere news gathering in enabling democratic nations to function with this documentary profile of Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Nicholas D. Kristof. Having previously succeeded in bringing international attention to the crisis in Darfur, Kristof travels to the Congo in the summer of 2007 to shed some much needed light on the suffering and poverty besieging the troubled African republic. In the process, Metzger is afforded the opportunity to reflect on the evolution of such stories, from reaching the public, to effecting change, and ultimately paving the way toward a humanitarian response. Metzgar recognizes that journalism is undergoing a massive change thanks in large to opinionated blogs and mindless infotainment, and with Reporter, he defends the future of ideas by emphasizing the importance of thorough, serious-minded, objective journalism in affecting change and promoting analytical thought.
