Mike Wallace is Here

IU Center for Rural Engagement, IU Cinema, Cicada Cinema, and the Brown County Playhouse in presents a film screening of Mike Wallace is Here.

A collection of short films made by local filmmakers will be screened at 6:30 p.m. followed by our feature film at 7 p.m. These shorts were produced for the Instant Gratification Movie Challenge.

Mike Wallace is Here offers an unflinching look at the legendary reporter, who interrogated the 20th century’s biggest figures in his over fifty years on air, and his aggressive reporting style and showmanship that redefined what America came to expect from broadcasters. Unearthing decades of never-before-seen footage from the 60 Minutes vault, the film explores what drove and plagued Wallace, whose storied career was entwined with the evolution of journalism itself.

(2019, Directed by Avi Belkin, Rated PG-13, 94 min.) Free admission, first come, first served.
