The Nation, America’s oldest weekly magazine, founded in 1865 and now in its 150th year, has long been considered one of America’s definitive journalistic voices. Hot Type, the new film by Barbara Kopple, a two-time Academy Award winner for Best Documentary Feature, tells the riveting and surprising story of The Nation.. The film captures daily life at the magazine, introduces staff writers and editors past and present, and follows members of The Nation’s sought-after internship program. At the heart of the film are the reporters covering stories in the field, and the in-depth coverage and long-term perspectives that The Nation provides on core issues like racial justice, foreign intervention and climate change. It is the story of The Nation—and the nation—evolving into the future, as it is guided by its remarkable past.
