Mike Wallace Is Here

September 20 - October 6

Single Tickets $6     Semester Passes $35     Where Are Films Shown?     Where Can I Park for free on Campus? 

Mike Wallace unflinchingly interrogated the biggest figures of the 20th century. During 50 years on the air, his aggressive reporting style and showmanship redefined what America has come to expect from broadcasters.

Deemed the “enemy of the people” by our current president, journalism in America is on the chopping block. Lies, fake news, propaganda, and verbal subterfuge threaten to cripple our First Amendment. This fascinating exposé of 60 Minutes’ fearsome newsman Mike Wallace turns his hard-hitting, no-holds-barred journalistic style loose on Wallace himself, who is considered by many to be the inventor of the form.

Directed by Israeli filmmaker Avi Belkin.

2019 | 94 min | presented in part by The New York Times

Wallace’s radically honest, rigorously-researched interviews, designed to hold people accountable, barely seem to exist in 2019. Television needs him now more than ever. – The Wrap

Belkin’s smart, dynamic documentary shares its subject’s slam-bang style. That’s good. Watching it is exhilarating. -The Boston Globe

A sharp, propulsive portrait of the hostile, dignified newsman who may have transformed television news into a weapon of mass destruction. -Indiewire
