Course #2:with Max Alvarez
The Media in the Movies:
Who can forget Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman chipping away at the Watergate scandal in All the President's Men? Or Jane Fonda exposing a nuclear plant accident in The China Syndrome? Some daring, crusading screen journalists succeed (Spotlight) while others are crushed (Kill the Messenger, Truth). Meanwhile, there are plenty who give the news industry a bad name (Kirk Douglas in Ace in the Hole, Sally Field in Absence of Malice). Join the lectures and see the film clips reflecting on how movies have portrayed the news media throughout the decades.
