THE NEWSMEN captures the massive sea change within American journalism today as the old guard of print editors confronts the disruption of the digital age. Juxtaposing the experiences of these editors against vintage found footage from a 1940 vocational film, THE NEWSMEN sheds light on the emotional and social impact of the collapse of a seemingly timeless profession as it morphs into a new one.
Featuring former and current newspaper editors Hank Klibanoff, Ken Paulson and Vernon Loeb.
Produced, directed, filmed and edited by Caroline Klibanoff for Georgetown University's Film & Media Studies program.
"The poet's duty and privilege is to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The poet's voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail." -- William Faulkner
