Pulitzer doc to pre­miere in July

Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Libby Hill

First Run Fea­tures an­nounced Mon­day the pre­miere date for di­rec­tor Kirk Si­mon’s doc­u­men­tary ex­am­in­ing the 100-year his­tory of the Pulitzer Prize.

“The Pulitzer at 100” will bow at Lin­coln Plaza Cin­ema on July 21 in New York City, with more cities to fol­low. The film ex­plores the im­pact the Pulitzers have on the coun­try’s cul­ture in the cen­tury since their in­cep­tion by way of in­ter­views with pre­vi­ous win­ners.

The in­ter­views ap­pear in­ter­spersed with an ex­am­i­na­tion of Joseph Pulitzer, whose funds founded Columbia Univer­sity’s School of Jour­nal­ism in 1912 and es­tab­lished the prizes that bear his name in 1917.
