Write a short summary of what happens in the film

This film looks to shed light on the rigor behind journalism and why it's all worth it. It’s a piece of work about pursuing the truth wherever it may lead and bringing that truth back in word form for the world to read. The film looks at Southeast Asia Bureau Chief Hannah Beech as she tries to uncover the truth surrounding rumors of genocide in Myanmar. Over and over, she encounters an uncooperative government, belligerent armed guards and signs of a massacre that had been hastily covered up—using journalistic instinct, empathy and resolve to get the truth no matter what. The spot was released at a time of heightened discussions about the subject matter, making it even more critical to reiterate the importance of the truth and the value of NYT journalism.

Explain how the work innovatively used the film medium.

The film centers around a new and innovative typographic treatment with words connecting and rewriting continuously as if a New York Times headline were being formed and molded as the journalist followed the story. This was combined with emotive mixed media and real found footage from the journalist to create a piece of film that immerses you in her experience—seeing, finding and witnessing things as she did. This was all done in The Times’ inimitable house style to bring together all the elements and create a unique film that condenses a complicated process into an emotional and immersive experience. It takes you on Hannah Beech’s journey to get to the bottom of a genocide in Myanmar that had been hastily covered up by an uncooperative government that was desperate to conceal it.
