Oscar and Emmy Award winning director Kirk Simon (Strangers No More, Masterclass) brings us this fascinating documentary to honor the centennial and rich history of the Pulitzer Prize. First awarded in 1917, the Pulitzer Prize is the legacy of Jewish-Hungarian immigrant and newspaperman Joseph Pulitzer. The film is told through riveting stories of artists, journalists, authors and composers who have won the prestigious prize. These include Carl Bernstein, Thomas Friedman, Toni Morrison, Michael Chabon, Tony Kushner, Wynton Marsalis, David Crosby, and so many more. With Pulitzer work read by some of the most compelling voices of our time, ranging from Helen Mirren and Natalie Portman to Liev Schreiber and John Lithgow, the film will leave you feeling inspired!
