Director: Jason Sussberg
Description: On July 8th 2005, blogger and activist Josh Wolf filmed an anti G8 protest in San Francisco’s Mission district. The protest turned violent and a police officer was injured, however Josh did not capture the incident on tape. After selling his edited video footage to KRON, a local cable channel, Josh was subpoenaed by a federal grand jury requesting that he turn over his complete, raw and unedited video footage. Josh refused to be the government’s informant and was jailed for 226 days.
The film debates many concerns for 21st century journalism. Who is a journalist in today’s world where everyday citizens maintain blogs and are equipped with cameras on their phones? What are society’s expectations of journalist outside their day jobs? Is it appropriate to be an activist attempting to influence the news in addition to covering it? Is objectivity ever possible? This intimate portrait attempts to answer these questions through the lens of young journalist at the center of the debate.
Attending: Jason Sussberg (director)
