Part of our "The Fourth Estate" Film + Conversation series
In 2019, the Denver Film Society will present a series of films and talks examining the state of journalism, as it intersects with changing business models, social power structures, modern technology, and governmental shifts. Join us for this unprecedented series as we screen the best in journalistic cinema, and invite industry leaders of Colorado and beyond for post-film conversations to address some of the most pressing issues facing the Fourth Estate today.
In this hallmark of journalism-based films, The Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) uncover the details of the Watergate scandal that ultimately lead to President Richard Nixon’s resignation.
Watchdog journalism and the vital role of media as a protector of democracy: The founding fathers envisioned the Fourth Estate to be an essential component of a properly-functioning government and society. But what happens when trust in the press is undermined and what is the impact on our country and in our communities? Our panel of experts will explore the essential role that journalists must play.
