Interview: Andrew Rossi on Page One: Inside the New York Times

Page One: Inside The New York Times is a new documentary about the challenges facing the famous US newspaper in the digital age.

Director Andrew Rossi was granted access to parts of the paper during an eventful year, which included the Wikileaks affair, US troops pulling out of Iraq, the decline of US print journalism and the rise of Twitter.

As newspapers go out of business, the film also focuses on two contrasting media reporters, David Carr and Brian Stelter, as they report on the emerging realities of the Internet era and the struggle news institutions, such as their own, face as traditional advertising revenues decline.

Andrew Rossi previously directed the HBO documentary Le Cirque: A Table In Heaven (2007) and was was also associate producer on Control Room (2004).
