*ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE*
During an 80-year career, newsman George Seldes spoke truth to power–whether dictators, generals, industrialists or newspaper publishers.
Through Seldes’ encounters with Lenin, Mussolini and J. Edgar Hoover, the tobacco industry and the “Lords of the Press,” TELL THE TRUTH AND RUN provides a gripping journey through the twentieth century and a piercing look at censorship and suppression in America’s news media.
With Ralph Nader, Victor Navasky, Ben Bagdikian, Daniel Ellsberg, Nat Hentoff, Marian Seldes and Jeff Cohen of FAIR. Narrated by Susan Sarandon and Ed Asner.
“A magnetic, entrancing, inspiring film… reveals a history of our times unknown to most Americans. At the same time delightful to watch and a powerful educational experience. I wish every young person in America could see it.”
