For 150 years The Nation has illuminated the country’s political and cultural climate with eloquence, insight, and unflinching honesty. In this tribute, two-time Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple reveals the soul of American journalism, introducing the remarkable writers and editors who guide the country’s oldest continuously published weekly magazine. A survey of its illustrious history of intellectual inquiry and dissent, interspersed with scenes of the trenchant reportage for which the magazine is known, Hot Type also examines the pressures and challenges of producing an independent-minded and independently owned publication in an age of corporate hegemony.
