Screening will be followed by a conversation with filmmaker Rachel Grady and The Washington Post’s Jason Rezaian.
ENDANGERED chronicles a year in the life of four journalists living and working in democratic countries where freedom of the press has historically been considered a “given.” Yet, as online misinformation proliferates and world leaders brazenly denigrate the press, distrust of traditional media is on the rise, and journalists are increasingly facing situations more typically encountered in war zones or autocratic states.
Produced by Rachel Grady, Heidi Ewing, and Alex Takats. Executive Produced by Ronan Farrow, Heidi Ewing, and Rachel Grady.
