Mike Wallace Is Here

This fascinating, unsentimental portrait of no-holds-barred newsman Mike Wallace deploys his patented relentless examination of his subjects on the man himself. The film not only rivetingly captures his life and work, but also places that work within a history of journalism that has led to the precarious tipping point that American media has currently reached. Filmmaker Avi Belkin constructs this multi-faceted, topical work entirely out of archival footage, allowing us to witness Wallace’s career in its own context, while also considering the role he played in where broadcast journalism sits today.

“A compulsively engrossing account of a career notable for its gutsy, confrontational attitude”– The Hollywood Reporter

2018, USA, 94 minutes, Directed by Avi Belkin
