ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Directed by two-time Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple, Hot Type: 150 Years of The Nation is "a spectacular, crowd-pleasing masterwork" (RogerEbert.com), and a vivid look at one of America's oldest magazines. Centered through Editor and Publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel, as well as an illustrious array of passionate writers, the film is a journey into the soul of American Journalism. With unfettered access and unfiltered honesty, Hot Type captures the day-to-day pressures and challenges of publishing a weekly magazine and illuminates how the past continuously ripples through and shapes current events. It is the story of The Nation - and the nation - evolving into the future as it is guided by its remarkable past. Featuring Rev. William Barber II, Bill Moyers, Rachel Maddow, Victor Navasky, Katrina vanden Heuvel, Ben Jealous, Amy Wilentz, Eric Alterman, Rick Perlstein, Betsy Reed, John Nichols, Richard Kim and many more.
