Hot Type: 150 Years of The Nation

About the Film

Acclaimed documentarian Barbara Kopple, the recipient of the 2013 Nantucket Film Festival’s Special Achievement in Documentary Storytelling Award and a two-time Academy Award® winner, returns to the festival with her latest film, a fascinating inside look at the oldest continuously published weekly magazine in the United States, The Nation. Now in its 150th year, the left-leaning publication remains as dedicated to its progressive mission as ever, but faces the daunting prospect of an aging readership and a new digital media landscape. As its captivating publisher, Katrina vanden Heuvel, tackles increasingly polarized political current affairs, Kopple skillfully weaves in stories from the magazine’s past  to form an illuminating bridge to its present and future.
