The Fourth Estate Programme 2020

by Liz Garbus, Jenny Carchman Series

"What a fucking story." With the inauguration of Donald Trump, the journalists of the influential New York Times face a considerable challenge: how to report this newly elected president, who continues to slander most of the media as "fake news". The Times grants insight into its editorial offices for Oscar-nominated director Liz Garbus’ documentary series THE FOURTH ESTATE. We take a look behind the scenes and accompany editors and investigative reporters as they go about their daily work during the first year of Trump's presidency. The result is a fascinating portrait of women and men fighting for the right for uncensored coverage. ZFF is screening the entire four-part documentary series. (Out of competition)
