Media, the 4th Estate
Since the year 2000, the editorial office of Novaya Gazeta, the recipient of more than 60 prestigious awards, and a three-time nominee for the Nobel Prize, has lost six of its members—journalists who searched relentlessly for inconvenient truths. The documentary offers a unique opportunity to observe the daily work of their colleagues and successors. Over the course of 18 months, the film records not only what they discuss in editorial meetings, but also how they choose their subjects, and how they respond to the sudden kidnapping of one of their editors.
