September 27 Film: TELL THE TRUTH AND RUN


The Peace and Justice Center and our Fourth Friday Film Forum presents,  “Tell the Truth and Run: George Seldes and the American Press” (1996) Narrated by Susan Sarandon. The Academy-Award-nominated Tell The Truth and Run, is the dramatic story of muckraking journalist George Seldes, and a piercing look at censorship and suppression in America’s news media. Eighty years a newspaperman, Seldes was a noted foreign correspondent who became America’s most important press critic. Through Seldes’s encounters with Pershing, Lenin and Mussolini; the tobacco industry, J. Edgar Hoover and the “lords of the press,” Tell The Truth and Run raises profound ethical, professional and political questions about journalism in America. “Tell the Truth and Run” shows on Friday Sept. 27, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Madelyn Helling Library, 980 Helling Way (near the Rood Center), Nevada City.  Come for the film, and stay for the discussion following the film. $10.00 suggested donation and free tea and organic popcorn!  For more information write to, or visit the Peace & Justice Center’s Facebook page.
