    Hot Type: 150 Years of The Nation (2015) A vivid, inside look at America's oldest continuously published weekly magazine. Shot over three years in intimate, cinema verite style by famed documentarian Barbara Kopple, the film -- which begins by recounting The Nation's development from its 1865 founding by Republican abolitionists to its veer towards its liberal bent during the heyday of Roosevelt's New Deal -- captures the day-to-day pressures and challenges of publishing the progressive magazine as it follows reporters out into the field, the editors who shape their work, and the editor-in chief who tries to keep all of the plates spinning. Writers are the heart and soul of the magazine, and the film follows them extensively.

    The Hunting of the President Redux (2014/2016) As the U.S. approaches its most consequential presidential election in generations, a powerful, newly updated film reveals just what is at stake for the country and the world. There can be no doubt that we live in one of the most tumultuous political climates in the nation's history, a climate where politicians can be toppled on a whim, election results disputed in the country's highest courts, and governors unceremoniously recalled. It's enough to leave even the most cynical voter asking, how did this happen? Harry Thomason and Nickolas Perry's incendiary documentary, based on the best-selling book "The Hunting of the President" by journalists Gene Lyons and Joe Conason, offers a glimpse at the genesis of these partisan vendettas and explores the myths and truths behind the more than 25-year campaign to systematically destroy the political legacy of Bill and Hillary Clinton. The film was originally released in 2004, but anti-Clinton forces managed to get it largely suppressed. But now it is back -- with more eye-opening revelations -- and available for more people to see than was previously possible. The film, now including new interviews and insights, explains clearly and convincingly how and why right-wing zealots have tried to destroy the Clintons -- initially during Bill Clinton's presidential campaign and his two terms in office, and now as Hillary Clinton aims to make history by becoming America's first female president.
