“Masterful. Dazzling. A prismatic portrait.” – The Wrap
MIKE WALLACE IS HERE offers an unflinching look at the legendary reporter, who interrogated the 20th century’s biggest figures in his over fifty years on air, and his aggressive reporting style and showmanship that redefined what America came to expect from broadcasters. Unearthing decades of never-before-seen footage from the 60 Minutes vault, the film explores what drove and plagued Wallace, whose storied career was entwined with the evolution of journalism itself.
Aspen Institute Executive Vice President Elliot Gerson will discuss the film and investigative reporting with WNYC’s Investigations Editor, David L. Lewis. Lewis, a documentarian, educator and former producer for 60 Minutes correspondent Ed Bradley, has over 35 years of experience in print and broadcast media.
