About the film

American democracy requires an informed citizenry. Can it survive without the backbone of independent local journalism?

Go inside The Storm Lake Times, a newspaper serving an Iowa town which has seen its fair share of changes in the 40 years since Big Agriculture came to the area. In Storm Lake, Pulitzer-winning editor Art Cullen and his family dedicate themselves to keeping the paper alive—come hell or pandemic.

If you enjoy the film—and/or it leaves you with burning questions you’d like to discuss—please join us directly afterward for a special interactive live conversation with these experts:

FILM THEMES/DISCUSSION TOPICS: first amendment, independent journalism, democracy, Big Agriculture, freedom of the press.
