For over 100 years, the family-owned Charleston Gazette-Mail has been a relentless watchdog over West Virginia’s most powerful, propelled by its unofficial mantra: “Sustained Outrage.” But just eight months after winning the Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting, the Gazette-Mail grapples with a painful reality: bankruptcy ahead of a sale. Shot over three years, the film is an intimate look inside the paper as its future is decided.
Sustained Outrage screened at Big Sky Documentary Film Festival in Missoula, MT on February 20 and 21, 2020.
Sustained Outrage is now airing and streaming on PBS' Reel South and World channels. Check your local listings or visit here to stream until July 20, 2020.
