Pulitzer doc to premiere in July
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.
