Trailer For Page One: Inside The New York Times

Posted by May 2, 2011 Comment

In the beginning, it seemed that Page One, a documentary about a year inside The New York Times, was timed perfectly to capture the spectacular nosedive of the old Newspaper business model and the rocketing rise of its online rival, not to say replacement. As it happens, Wikileaks really started to make waves part way through the year in question, and the story took some unexpected diversions, becoming laden with some huge new concerns and gripping ideas.

The film has played festivals to acclaim. I’ve not seen it all, but did preview a good section at an event held by the film’s UK distributors, Dogwoof, and it was riveting stuff. This new trailer (which you can see in HD at Apple) only comes part way to capturing the urgency and vitality of what I saw.

The film opens across the US in the Summer and in the UK in the Autumn. I’m looking forward to it a great deal.
